Welcome to AIESEC in Edinburgh, the local branch of the world's largest youth organisation! Here at AIESEC, we aim to discover every student's leadership potential by equipping you with strong transferable skills, and by facilitating international exchange. As a member of our society, you will be able to attend weekly skills sessions and develop your CV, as well as contributing to AIESEC by helping raise exchange opportunities within Edinburgh and across the world. You will also have the opportunity to go on exchange yourself!

 

Over 80,000 students, each year, in over 120 countries and territories manage this UN-affiliated organisation that facilitates over 15,000 international exchanges so that young people may experience and understand cultures other than their own.

We believe that being part of this global community, taking these management and leadership opportunities and having the chance to learn and question our roles in society gives us as AIESECers a bit of power and direction in becoming change agents for positive impact.

AIESEC was founded after the Second World War, in 1948 in 7 countries in Europe. Now, more than 70 years later we're present in over 110 countries and territories and are still growing.

What's more, since its foundation, AIESEC has been entirely youth-led. This means every single year, new leadership teams are elected from the membership at every level of the international association.

This means 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 such as:

 

Bill Clinton Former US President

Helmut Kohl Former German Chancellor

Aleksander Kwasniewski Former President of Poland

Janez Drnovsek Former Prime Minister of Slovenia

Koosum Kalayan General Manager of Shell

Micheline Rey Federal Council of Switzerland

Kofi Annan Seventh General Secretary of United Nations
