Does anybody here have any information on Morgan Stanley's Chicago IBD office? I've done a search on this forum, and there's little to no information available.

From what I can gather, MS Chicago:

  • Has a generalist program for analysts
  • Smaller office (how small, exactly?)
  • Mainly focuses on industrials and consumer retail

Any information on culture/hours/exit opps?

if u r from ross, superday is next Tuesday.


Industrials and consumer retail focus is true. I would consider MS the #2 to JPM in Chicago. As far as culture, it is a very tight nit group with about 20-30 bankers in total (7-8 analysts, I know of one each from USC and ND). They have a Vice Chairman who sits there as well. Core schools for their office are definetely ND and UofM- many people in the office are huge Notre Dame fans and they actually have company events around the Fighting Irish football season. IMHO (FWIW) the office was a bit too fratty for my liking (even the senior bankers).


Has anyone heard back from the superday?
