Our story so far

It all started after World War II, when seven young people from Europe determined that cross-cultural understanding was essential to prevent similar conflicts. AIESEC was born in 1948 as a way to help expand people's understanding of different cultures and perspectives. 

Today, we enable young people to develop their leadership through learning from practical experiences in challenging environments. We do this by facilitating cross-cultural exchanges across our international network which let young people understand more about themselves and the world around them.

In 2015, we were also one of the first organisations to partner with the United Nations with a commitment to align what we do to help achieve the Sustainable Development Goals.
Today, developing more young people into global leaders is still what we passionately aim for so we can achieve our vision: peace and fulfilment of humankind's potential.
