Why we do what we do
AIESEC was founded in 1948, just after the Second World War. Its goals were peace and the development of human potential, to shape young people so that they would become responsible leaders guided by strong positive values, through practical experiences in dynamic settings.
With support from companies, schools and other organizations, AIESEC offers international mobility programmes through which students are given the opportunity meet people from other cultures and exchange views on global issues.
AIESEC has been working with the United Nations since September 2015 to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals: the set of targets to be reached by 2030 on the most important issues at global level, like hunger, global warming, inequality, the lack of universal education.
Our mobility projects for outgoing students
