Since its foundation, AIESEC has been entirely youth-led. Every single year, new leadership teams are elected from the membership at every level of the international association.

We have over 1,000,000 alumni who’ve been through an ‘AIESEC Experience’, many of whom have gone on to do incredible things. Our alumni include leaders within business, global politicians and even a Nobel Peace Laureate.
