Amber James, Morgan Stanley

Amber Ashley James graduated with honors from Harvard College in 2011, with a joint degree in English and African American Studies, and a language citation in Mandarin. While at Harvard, Amber was an active member of the Kuumba Singers, The Association of Black Harvard Women, and the Senior Gift campaign. Her sophomore summer, she interned in Investment Banking-Media and Telecom and Fixed Income Research-Structured Products at Credit Suisse. Amber spent the summer after her junior year as an analyst in Investment Banking-Mergers & Acquisitions at Morgan Stanley. She decided to return to Morgan Stanley after graduation, and is currently a first year analyst in M&A. Amber will be returning to Cambridge in the Fall of 2013 as a member of the Harvard Business School Class of 2015. A native of West Palm Beach, Florida, she is less than thrilled about the return to Cambridge winters, but excited to be back in her old stomping grounds.
