    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Morgan Stanley in November 2017.

    Interview

    Really fair. Mainly technical questions in the first round interview. The interviewers were nice and paid efforts in leading your thoughts. Should be prepared to get DCF, multiples, mergers & acquisition questions. Besides, should be fully acknowledged of MS's recent well-known deals.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Morgan Stanley (New York, NY) in August 2017.

    Interview

    25 minute interview. Asked typical IB questions. Know basics of 3 valuation techniques and you should be ok. HR was very bad in dealing with scheduling/follow up. Liked my interviewers and was told I did well then didn't hear anything for a few weeks, I asked them and they replied they were having HR difficulties so their process was delayed/messed up.

    Interview Questions

    • Walk me through your resume, walk me through a DCF, what are the three valuation methods, what do you do for fun outside of work   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Morgan Stanley in August 2017.

    Interview

    Applied early and got a phone screen with a University alum. Call was pretty easy and basic, mostly fit questions and thought it went fairly well. Thought I had been rejected because I didn't hear back from MS until recently that I am through to the next round -- definitely got moved from early track to regular track though

    Interview Questions

    • Basic resume questions, tell me about yourself, what are some activities you do at University, Walk me through a DCF   Answer Question

    First round phone interview after applying online through university followed by super day where they fly you up to New York. Pretty quick process since the recruiting timeline has been shifted up earlier.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Morgan Stanley (New York, NY) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Began with 1 on 1 phone screen with analyst. Very basic/standard technical and behavioral questions, almost lifted directly from the guides.

    Progressed to another phone screen with an MD. Again, mostly standard stuff, although he followed up on questions to test my knowledge and understanding. Was progressed to superday, although I had already accepted another offer so I declined.

      Walk me through a DCF?

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Morgan Stanley (New York, NY) in September 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online at the end of July and had a first round phone interview in mid-August. Around late August I was notified that I was invited to Superday interviews. The Superday was four back-to-back interviews with one VP, two EDs, and one MD. One of the EDs was tasked with the technical portion of the interview, and the other three interviews were mainly behavioral/fit aside from some basic valuation questions.
