Activating Youth Leadership since 1948

What’s AIESEC?

AIESEC is a global youth-led organisation striving to achieve peace and fulfilment of humankind’s potential by activating leadership qualities in youth through learning from practical experiences in challenging environments. Together with partner organisations, AIESEC facilitates a network of cross-cultural exchanges in the form of volunteering experiences and professional internships.

Where does the name come from?

AIESEC (pronounced eye-sek) was originally an acronym for Association Internationale des Étudiants en Sciences Économiques et Commerciales. AIESEC is no longer used as an acronym but simply as the name of the organisation and it only can be written in capitals.

Why we do what we do?

We place our confidence in youth as the key to unlocking a better future. We believe that leadership is the fundamental solution and it can be developed in anyone.

We define leadership as a summary of the following characteristics:
