This 6 week AIESEC program provides undergraduate students an opportunity to develop entrepreneurial and leadership skills through international internships centered around social issues. The objective is to target our country’s youth and help them enrich their education by offering them a holistic international experience.

Tens of thousands of students and fresh graduates each year in over 113 countries manage an organization that facilitates a huge number of international exchanges. These exchanges have an aim to provide young people with an experience that helps them understand cultures other than their own.
We believe that being a part of this global community, taking these management and leadership opportunities and having a chance to learn and question our roles in the society gives us, as AIESECers, a bit of power and direction in becoming agents of change and equips us with skills that can impact our society positively.
A.I.E.S.E.C. 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 organization.
AIESEC was founded way back in 1948 in 7 countries in Europe. Now, more than 60 years later we’re present in over 113 countries and territories, and are still growing.
Since its foundation, AIESEC has been entirely youth-led. Every single year, new leadership teams are elected from the membership at every level of the international association.
We have over 1,000,000 alumni who’ve been through an ‘AIESEC Experience’, many of whom have gone on to do incredible things. Our alumni include leaders within business, global politicians and even a Nobel Peace Laureate.
