General Description The Investment Management Summer Analyst Program is a 10-week program consisting of one week of training and nine weeks working within a specific IM team. Across all IM teams, the curriculum is designed to equip Summer Analysts with the fundamental skills they need to be successful in IM.

The High Yield department manages $21 billion. Members of the High Yield research team contribute to idea generation by conducting thorough fundamental research and relative value analysis. Research is organized by industry specialization with each Senior Analyst covering high-yield companies within two to four industries. When applicable, members of the High Yield Group work closely with analysts from MSIM's equity, leveraged loan, global income, and investment grade teams.
