AIESEC in a nutshell

AIESEC is a global platform for young people to explore and develop their leadership potential. We are a non-political, independent, not-for-profit organisation run by students and recent graduates of institutions of higher education. Its members are interested in world issues, leadership and management. AIESEC does not discriminate on the basis of ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, religion or national / social origin.

Our belief is that sustainable, informed and globally-minded leadership can help us solve many of today’s challenges. We provide young people with a global platform where they grow in confidence, gain experience and can perhaps fail but learn fast. They discover what really matters to them while creating a positive social impact.

Our History

[/av_textblock]

[av_textblock size=” font_color=” color=” custom_class=”]

AIESEC was founded during the year 1948 in the years following the end of WWII when there was a need to protect peace and enable greater cultural understanding. Several like-minded individuals thought of ways to make sure that future generations would never have to face the terrors of war ever again. They believed that it was through understanding that we can develop such a peaceful future.

AIESEC in Sweden is one of the founding entities of the organization, having been established after World War II. Our entity has 70 years of experience in developing leaders. We are positioned in 6 cities around Sweden with Local Chapters in Gothenburg, Jönköping, Linköping, Lund, Stockholm and Uppsala.

The current national leadership team is comprised of 7 representatives from 7 nationalities for the 2018-19 term. Unlike any other organization, AIESEC elects a new National President annually, whom then selects a new leadership team to lead and manage the national network. The ever-evolving dynamic nature of AIESEC enables it to stay true to the roots of being youth-run for youth since its founding in 1948.

Its members are interested in world issues, leadership and management. AIESEC does not discriminate on the basis of ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, religion or national / social origin.

Since we were founded, we have engaged and developed over 1,000,000 young people who have been through an AIESEC experience.

[av_tab title=’What does AIESEC stand for?’ icon_select=’no’ icon=’ue800′ font=’entypo-fontello’]

AIESEC (pronounced eye-sek) 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 organisation.

The organisation spans 126 countries and territories and every aspect of AIESEC’s operations are managed by students and recent graduates.

We have operated in this way since our inception, making us uniquely “by students, for students”, for over 70 years. The global leadership teams are elected by the membership annually.
