AIESEC – Introduction

AIESEC is a global, non-political, independent, not-for-profit organisation, run by students and recent graduates of higher education. Our members are interested in world issues, leadership and management. Our international platform enables young people to discover and develop their potential to provide leadership for a positive impact on society.
AIESEC provides its members with an integrated development experience comprised of leadership opportunities, international internships and participation in a global learning environment. Towards this aim and with commitment to our values, we run more than 350 conferences, provide 3,500 work abroad opportunities and offer over 5,000 leadership positions to our members each year.
AIESEC has, each year since 1948, worked to fulfill the mission of developing young people to be individuals able to meet the challenges of the world, our countries and local communities. By empowering them with the necessary skills and understanding of the forces shaping the world around them, we create a powerful group of future leaders with a strong sense of social responsibility and a desire to act. Our Vision for the organisation when we started off was "Peace and Fulfillment of Humankind’s Potential" and it still remains the same.

AIESEC develops youth by providing a series of learning experiences linked to a diversity of activities in fields such as sustainable development, education, enterprise and social responsibility. A major component of these activities is international traineeship exchange, facilitating an intense intercultural and practical experience in another society, exposing the trainee and those they meet to a different culture, community and its issues. Currently, over 4,200 of these exchanges occur annually.

AIESEC have an understanding of the success of these learning experiences. All around the world, in all walks of life and positions of responsibility, we have over 750,000 alumni who demonstrate the power of the AIESEC experience. We also knows from the testimonies of the organisations that work with us and support us that our people have introduced new skills and ideas, challenged existing organizational values, brought an international perspective and motivated and inspired employees with a greater appreciation and understanding of cultural diversity.

Our partner organizations, literally thousands from all sectors, look at AIESEC as a way to support the development of young people and to have access to high-potential young talent from around the world. Our ex-members are leaders within these organizations and their communities – using the experience, skills, and increased vision that AIESEC gave them to be agents of positive change.
