About Us

So what is AIESEC?

AIESEC is a French acronym meaning “Association Internationale des Etudiants en Sciences Economiques et Commerciales.” While we still feel a strong connection to our roots, we no longer use the French acronym. We instead use AIESEC (pronounced “eye-sek”) simply as is.

AIESEC is a global, non-political, independent, not-for-profit organization 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 race, color, gender, sexual orientation, creed, religion, national, ethnic or social origin.
