The AIESEC Way is not only a description of the way (manner) we aim to make a positive impact on
society, but also describes the way (road) we are taking to achieve what we envision.
What is AIESEC?
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, colour, gender,
sexual orientation, creed, religion, national, ethnic or social origin.
What We Envision
Peace and fulfilment of humankind's potential.
Our international platform enables young people to discover and develop their potential to
provide leadership for a positive impact on society.
The Way We Do It
AIESEC provides its members with an integrated development experience comprised of leadership
opportunities, international internships and participation in a global learning environment.
Note: This Global Learning Environment is comprised of six elements: self-reflexion, learning
circles, team experiences, conferences and seminars, mentorship and virtual spaces.
We lead by example and inspire leadership through actions and results. We take full
responsibility for developing the potential of other people.
We are consistent and transparent in our decisions and actions. We fulfil our commitments and
conduct ourselves in a way that is true to our ideals.
We seek to learn from the different ways of life and opinions represented in our multicultural
environment. We respect and actively encourage the contribution of every individual.
We have a dynamic environment created by active and enthusiastic involvement of individuals. We
enjoy being involved in AIESEC.
Striving for Excellence
We aim to deliver the highest quality performance in everything we do. Through creativity and
innovation we seek to continuously improve our results.
We act in a way that is sustainable for our organisation and society. Our decisions take into
account the needs of future generations.
