AIESEC is a non profit organization, its the world's largest student organization. It is an international platform for young people to discover and develop their potential so as to have a positive impact on society. It is an organization run by students and recent graduates of institutions of higher education. AIESEC is actually an acronym, it stands for Association Internationale des Étudiants en Sciences Économiques et Commerciales. Meaning: An international association for Economic Sciences and Commerce students.

How AIESEC has helped you personally?
AIESEC in simple terms is a link between the students and the corporate world. I have been a member since October. Since then we had a lot of meetings and a couple of conferences. It is an amazing experience. You get to meet different people, you get to learn etiquette and stuff. Its a market of opportunities, where you can choose your opportunity. :)
