AIESEC is an entirely youth-led not-for-profit organisation present in over 125 countries and territories, and active since 1948.
We provide young people with the opportunity to grow and learn in an exciting new environment, undertaking enriching cross-cultural experiences while having a positive impact on world and developing relevant skills for their future careers.
We do not discriminate and we are non-political. We firmly stand for our own vision for the world: peace and the fulfilment of humankind’s potential.
AIESEC was originally a French acronym for Association internationale des étudiants en sciences économiques et commerciales (English: International Association of Students in Economic and Commercial Sciences); however, the full name is no longer officially used as members can now come from any university background.
We are independent and we do not discriminate: we want to develop leadership in everyone, no matter who they are or where they come from. All we ask is that they share our values.
And we have a clear way of getting the job done.
Capitalising on our 65+ years of experience, we have developed what we call AIESEC’s Leadership Development Model. If you need more information on how we do what we do, then please take a minute to watch this video.
