PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE Dear Readers, The 5th of June 1986, is a day of great significance for the AIESEC Network, it was the day AIESEC in Hyderabad was officially a member of the AIESEC India Association. It was this day onward that golden opportunities were made available to the youth of Hyderabad. Value based Leadership, freedom with responsibilities, internships with global perspective, membership with experience, these are few out of a range of learning AIESEC has to offer. Today, 26 years down, in the 27th year we progress as always, AIESEC in Hyderabad stands tall in the AIESEC Network & outside it. Life changing experiences being continuously delivered to Youth, and the Impact being created beyond AIESEC Journeys, is the epitome of example of AIESEC`s relevance to the society. Over a 1000 students across the AIESEC Network have visited Hyderabad, we have mapped Hyderabad as a Global Destination successfully, justifying AIESEC`s relevance day after day, month after month and year after year. We have been the pioneering Chapter in the AIESEC Network to produce the best experiences. Delivering opportunities to internationals across the most coveted organisations in the city, from NGOs to MNCs, from schools to colleges, we have ensured diversity to the fullest. We have also given numerous opportunities to Youth of Hyderabad to take up similar journeys across the AIESEC Network and continue to do so with better quality each day, creating awareness about these opportunities is one of our goals. As a part of the Youth, I`d like to share with you why these experiences are life changing. They are life changing because these experiences equip us with qualities relevant to our real lives, AIESEC takes us beyond our routine, beyond books, beyond jobs, it takes us beyond horizons, and that is why we realize our individual potential at AIESEC. Started 60 years ago - "AIESEC, the international platform for young people to explore & develop their leadership potential" still stands true. Our purpose & essence of our existence governs our actions, we continue to live by them. From social initiatives, international exchange programs, youth events, our progress, our clients, our stakeholders, our alumni so on and the Leadership Body of 2012, all of which have carried forward what started off in the year 1948. In the 26 years of our existence in Hyderabad, hundreds of Youth have been positively impacted, immense amount of effort has gone in, countless number of hours have been dedicated to AIESEC Experiences. All these are integral part of the years which have gone by. Another colourful page of 2012 has been added in the history of this Local Chapter which bears the name of the "24x7 Leadership Factory", we strive to live up to the name & the fine products AIESEC in Hyderabad creates. At AIESEC we believe in engaging our stakeholders, through this initiative, we would like to share with you our experiences, and your instrumental role in them. In the year 2013 we wish progress in a successful & sustainable manner. We wish to take AIESEC to greater heights, and we do require your continuous support & patronage as always. This is the story which unfolded on June 5th 1986, and it continues to be told the story of AIESEC in Hyderabad & everyone who is a part of it. On behalf of AIESEC in Hyderabad, I would like to offer my sincere gratitude to all our partners, supporters, patrons, well wishers for nurturing AIESEC in Hyderabad to a stage it stands today, it has been a wonderful journey for everyone who has been a part of it. I hope more and more Youth & organisations become a part of AIESEC in the forthcoming years of AIESEC. Sincerely,

Madhav Raj President AIESEC Hyderabad 2013-2014

‘Entrepreneurship’ is a word thrown around almost whimsically whenever one addresses the youth of today. And why not? Those in this age group certainly do possess the physical and, more importantly, mental temperament for the demands of this line of work. This is true of the Indian scene as well. India is moving forward, and at a fast pace at that. At this stage of our political and economic development, we require the best of Entrepreneurs to ensure that we do not falter. AIESEC, being as impactful as it has been, feels obliged to play a major part in this. Naturally, we turn to our Stakeholders for mentoring. India is changing, and so are its trends. The youth needs to be well-equipped when it comes to leading the country. The youth is the future; they must work to make it brighter. In the 27th year of excellence, credibility, hard work coupled with passion, zeal and enthusiasm we plan to make AIESEC Hyderabad what it is today and will be in the upcoming few decades.
