Hiring plans: The bank sees "MBA hires as an integral part of its global talent strategy," says Carissa Ramirez, a spokeswoman.
What they're looking for: Morgan Stanley seeks "energetic, creative, well-rounded, outgoing and self-motivated individuals" with "strong quantitative and analytical skills,"
In the wake of this year's financial crisis, Morgan Stanley had to reinvent itself as a bank holding company and accept TARP money from the U.S. government. Yet it actually rose in
B-school students' esteem, moving up 2 slots on the 100 Top MBA Employers rankings.
Morgan Stanley mostly hires through its 10-week summer internship program, Ramirez said. After gaining exposure to the financial markets, summer associates who make the grade are
hired into Morgan Stanley's sales and trading, investment banking, private wealth management or investment management division.
