We partner with a wide variety of organizations, from multinational to small business, non-profit to government and even the UN:

“The United Nations has long recognized that the imagination, ideals and energy of young men and women are vital for the continuing development of societies in which they live.

And since its inception in 1948, AIESEC has contributed to this development by serving as an agent of positive change through education and cultural exchange.

In an era of globalization, your programs have helped young people around the world to develop a broader understanding of cultural, socioeconomic and business management issues.” – Kofi Annan, Former Secretary-General
