Formerly a French acronym translating to International Association of Students in Economics and Business Management However, because our membership has grown to encompass a much wider range of disciplines than only economics and commerce, we no longer use the acronym. Our role in society and the core work we do are reflected more through the nature of Aiesec and its members.

“ I came home nine months after with a heavy bag full of new experiences, new friends and a different look upon my life…I have learned that you should never judge something or someone you don’t know and that all people are the same.” ~ Lene Styner (Denmark) After traineeship in USA
With this, we’re looking for students with open minds-- those who are willing to try something different, expand their horizons and redefine themselves However, please note that Aiesec is not to be mistaken to be a type of JOB PLACEMENT AGENCY. Nor do we facilitate any kind of study abroad program.
“My experience as a whole will have a long-term affect on me. I will always be thankful that I was given this opportunity. Being able to experience a culture very different from my own is an experience I will never forget. It has made me realize how diversity is something you really don't understand until you are the one that is different. I come from a predominantly white, upper middle class area in the US. India is like a whole different world. Everything is different - culture, business, politics, religion, the basic ways of life. I have made many friends here whom I hope to stay in contact with in the future. Overall, I feel that this experience has made me a more complete and better person.” ~Karin Otto (USA) After traineeship in India
