Average Interview

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.

    Was emailed the night before the interview by an analyst. This was for the accelerated process. Short interview, 30 minutes with behavioral and technical questions. Very relaxed, with time left for questions at the end.

    Difficult Interview

    Interview

    Fairly standard, had phone interviews first, and then got invited for the final round. The Hong Kong team flew over and all the applicants had the interviews in the New York office. Had 3 interviews consecutively with one or multiple interviewers. No technical questions. More about how hungry you are and how informed you are about MS/IBD

    • Tell me a recent deal that MS Hong Kong team did.   1 Answer

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Morgan Stanley (New York, NY) in December 2015.

    Interview

    1 Phone interview (Analyst) + Superday (5 interviews, VP, VP, VP, Associate, Associate)

    Great communication throughout and very quick response after Superday. Basic technical preparation is Key to tick a box during the phone interview, but ultimately they focus on personality and fit so you better be interesting to talk to!

    Interview

    I had applied through my college careers services. I got a first round face-to-face interview for Investment Banking. The interviewers came down to campus to interview. Interviewers looked generally disinterested right from the word go. Asked only one technical question. Got back to me after almost a month.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Morgan Stanley in January 2015.

    Interview

    Non-core student, networked my way in. Senior managers asked mostly fit questions (tell me about yourself, why banking, tell me about your previous internship), I had one associate ask me "Value your university and sell it to me" that was the most difficult question, other than that interview was great
