The objective is to target our country’s youth and help them enrich their education by offering them a holistic international experience.

My Summer in Egypt. One of the best decisions of my life has been to pay Rs 30 and fill the form to join AIESEC, because of which i decided to go on exchange to Egypt. This paragraph is just not enough to explain my experience. You actually need to go on exchange to understand what i mean. I hope you do I was an Intern with AIESEC in Cairo University. I worked on a project called ‘The Tripple Effect”. Working on a social project in a team of 10 interns and staying in a house with 27 people from more than 10 different countries taught me much more than the 3 years I’ve spent in college.

It was exactly around this time last year when I decided to go on exchange. After some amount of contemplation, I chose Malaysia I went for 6 weeks and worked on an environmental awareness and an HIV/AIDs project there. To the say the least, the decision to go on exchange, woke me up. It woke me up to the host of experiences that I had believed were out of my reach. It made me believe in things that I had long since considered existent and most of all, it introduced to me to people really stretched my mind. Once I was there, there was no turning back! My exchange was that single factor that exposed me to everything AIESEC has to offer. If not for those 6 weeks, I would definitely not be half of where I am today. It was definately a life changing experience for me!

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.
