INTERVIEW QUESTIONS: Morgan Stanley, Credit Risk, Graduate Job
You've already had an offer from Bank of America, so why do you want to work for Morgan Stanley?
I've heard that the graduate scheme at Morgan Stanley is better in that it offers an opportunity for client interaction in the form of due diligence calls and visits.
Where do you aspire to be in ten years' time?
I mentioned the CFA Charter and the possibility of attending business school. I said I'd like to have a senior position within the division and to handle my own portfolio of companies. I also mentioned my specific interest in the technology sector (this led to the next question).
Which company do you admire the most in the technology sector?
I admire Apple, due to their business strategy of not releasing lower margin products such as a cheaper iPhone. Instead, they sell older models to capture a larger part of the market. This protects margins.
