AIESEC is an international, not-for-profit, non-political organization run by students and recent graduates at institutions of higher education across 124 countries and territories. Our platform provides our members with an integrated development experience comprised of leadership opportunities, international internships, and a global learning environment. AIESEC has also developed value-based partnerships with various organization and companies worldwide that seek to interact with our top-talent youth membership base, both physically and virtually. Students across the globe connect directly with AIESEC through “local committees” (LCs) – specific AIESEC chapters set-up in cities and universities. AIESEC was founded in Western Europe at the end of World War II in 1948 to promote cross-cultural understanding and youth leadership as a means to avoid another conflict. Since its founding, AIESEC has provided membership experiences to over one million alumni worldwide. Our exchange and membership programs have been endorsed by the United Nations, multiple US presidents, CEOs of multinational corporations and leaders of top-level human development organizations.
