Entrepreneurs in Action Investment (Management Mentoring Programme sponsored by Morgan Stanley)
About the programme:
The Entrepreneurs in Action Investment Management Mentoring Programme – sponsored by Morgan Stanley – is an opportunity for black students interested in a career in investment management.
This online programme provides participants with an insight into what it is really like to work for a global financial services firm and the opportunity to develop skills which are not taught in the classroom or lecture theatre.
Candidates will participate in an immersive Classroom to Boardroom programme which will help them build a network with like-minded fellow students from different universities.
The programme will take place online using Zoom over five days from 6th – 10th June.
We are looking for motivated students in their penultimate or final year of university, as well as recent graduates who are interested in learning more about a career in investment management.
The programme also provides an opportunity for candidates to engage with a Morgan Stanley mentor from the investment management division for six to 12 months following the initial training. Mentors can support participants with further professional development and applications they may wish to make to Morgan Stanley programmes.
What is the application process?
You will be required to take an online assessment set by Morgan Stanley.
The deadline to complete the test is 30th May at 11.59 GMT.
Applicants will be notified of whether they have passed the test or not by email.
We will notify all applicants whether they have been invited to attend the programme by 1st June.
The programme has two phases:
Phase one) 6th June: one day confidence-based assessment which will take place online. The morning session will focus on personal development, followed by your assessment in the afternoon.
Phase two) 7th – 10th June: four day online Classroom to Boardroom programme at the end of which you will get the opportunity to showcase your talents to Morgan Stanley executives.
Before you apply please be sure you are able to commit to working from 9am – 5pm on the above dates.
Please note that by applying to the Entrepreneurs in Action Mentoring Programme you are not applying directly to Morgan Stanley.
What does the programme offer?
Applicants will be supported throughout the process. The Entrepreneurs in Action coaching team will be on hand during phases one and two, while Morgan Stanley staff will support the assessment and application process.
The support you receive is focused on improving your knowledge of Morgan Stanley and the investment management industry, as well as building your confidence, to assist you in making the best possible application.
All phase one applicants who do not go forward to phase two will be provided with follow-up opportunities to learn more about the investment management division should they wish to apply for any other Morgan Stanley programmes in future.
Successful applicants from phase two will be matched with a mentor from Morgan Stanley who will provide one-to-one support with applications for opportunities with Morgan Stanley’s Investment Management Division.
Phase two participants will continue to receive support from their Morgan Stanley mentor for a period of six to twelve months whether or not they are offered an internship or a permanent role. This support will help you prepare for a role in the investment management or the financial services industry.
