The Global Internship Program
The Global Internship Program (Exchange Program) is the defining element of the AIESEC
experience providing you the opportunity to live and work in a foreign country. It is the most
intense learning experience that we offer and it links together our global network. The whole
AIESEC network focuses on increasing the number of high quality traineeship experiences.
Through our exchange program, we offer over 5.500 members a year the opportunity
to have a practical professional experience in a foreign country.The challenge of living and
working abroad provides an incredible learning experience.
The strength of our network, membership, and organizational support rests with exchange.
Everyone in AIESEC is connected through exchange. We can link almost all of our local work directly
or indirectly to increasing the quality and quantity of exchanges that we provide.
It is also the primary reason for which most organizations partner with us and for which our
thousands of members communicate with each other on a daily basis.
