What is AIESEC anyway?

A place to Become

We are not looking for perfect people.
We are not looking for people that have it all figured out.
We  are looking for people who see the injustices, insecurity and ugliness of our societies and want to make them better.
If you are daily concerned about how to make a society that does not discriminate, a society where everyone has equal opportunities, a society where ideas and businesses can thrive, then you are in the right place

A Safespace

We are a non-political, independent, not-for-profit organization run by students and recent graduates of institutions of higher education. AIESEC does not discriminate on the basis of ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, religion or national/social origin. Our members are interested in world issues, leadership, and management.

How does AIESEC develop members?

Learn by Doing

We believe, and time has shown, that people learn better and faster when given the opportunity to practice what they learn. In AIESEC, in addition to training our members, we give them practical scenarios to practise and develop their skills. This means that from the moment you join AIESEC, you start learning how to lead people, organizations and how to make data-driven, smart decisions.

Travel and Cross Cultural Immersion

Travel is a huge part of what we do in AIESEC as when you travel, you meet people with different ideas than yours which challenge your world view, and have cultural experiences which inspire you. Within Sweden or outside of it, be prepared to travel with AIESEC, for conferences and trainings, international exchange experiences, or even on Team Days with members of your local community.

Education Cycles

Within AIESEC, we have a set of standards that are continuously met for our membership. We call them the Team Standards and they ensure that every member of AIESEC is developing themselves professionally in their chosen department, and personally in a set of goals they outline at the start of every quarter. We review quarterly to make sure these goals are met and if not, how to meet them.
