MEMBERS GUIDE 2
AIESEC was founded in 1948 by students from Belgium, Denmark, France, Finland, Norway, Sweden and The Netherlands as a response to the cultural insensitivity of the World War II.
AIESEC is a French acronym for ‘Association Internationale des Etudiants en Sciences Economiques et Commerciales’. Today, we no longer use it as our membership has grown to encompass a much wider range of disciplines than only economics and commerce.
AIESEC , the world’s largest studentrun organisation, is an international platform for young people to discover and develop their potential to have a positive impact on society. With a focus on building personal networks and exploring the direction and ambition of their future, AIESEC has an innovative approach to engaging and developing young people into the leaders needed today and tomorrow.

The AIESEC WAY AIESEC has its own unique approach of making an impact.
The AIESEC Way is not only a description of the manner we aim to make a positive impact on society, but also describes the road we are taking to achieve what we envision.

AIESEC 2015 AIESEC 2015 is the mid-term ambition defined by AIESEC globally during International Conference 2010 in India. The midterm ambition is composed by vision statements that came from 600 delegates present at the conference with the virtual support of members and alumni.
Since the creation of the AIESEC Way, our organisation keeps this essence as our main compass that connects our vision - Peace and Ful lment of Humankind’s Potential - to our evolution throughout the years.
BHAG – BHAG stands for Big, Hairy, Audacious, and Goal . It’s a hope that drives organizational accomplishments by setting a focal point of eﬀorts for organizational alignment. The BHAG is used for pointing a motivational direction that pushes us closer to our vision.
In order to advance, we need to maintain the essence of the organisation, but, at the same time, allow innovation and progress. It’s not one versus the other, but one complementing the other! That’s why AIESEC2015 is about improving our current programmes - exchange, leadership and global learning environment - while inventing new ones.
The statements of AIESEC 2015 tell us what AIESEC will look like in 2015, the first step to achieving our BHAG. It is through these statements that AIESEC is able to design the activities it will deliver in 2015:
Be the pulse of the World Twitter’s BHAG
AIESEC’s BHAG for 2015 is to
‘Engage and develop every young person in the world’
