The United Nations has long recognised that the imagination, ideals and energies of young men and women are vital for the continuing development of the societies in which they live.  And since its inception in 1948, AIESEC has contributed to this development by serving as an agent of positive change through education and cultural exchange.  In an era of globalisation, your programmes have helped young people around the world to develop a broader understanding of cultural, socio-economic and business management issues.

Kofi Annan, Secretary-General, United Nations

“PwC and AIESEC, with a common philosophy and view of the future, have worked together for many years.  We advise today’s global business leaders; you are developing those of the future.  We both share our knowledge, and in so doing multiply it.  We both pursue cultural and professional diversity, achieving the blend of perspectives that leads to innovation.”

Jim Schiro, Chief Executive Officer, PwC

“In our experience AIESEC students possess exactly the qualities we are looking for: international and intercultural awareness, integrity, intuition and communication skills.  We are always happy to have talented, committed and open-minded AIESEC students on internships with us and to share their spirit which enriches the corporate culture tremendously.”

Dr Peter Wuffli, Chief Financial Officer, Rainer Kirchhofer, Corporate Human Resources, UBS

“[AIESEC] is an effective advocate for young people and their aspirations for the future of their communities.  As a student NGO, it has an important voice in the debate on the mission of higher education in the 21st century.  It helps form responsible citizens with a worldwide vision.  Its members are interested in actively participating, as future leaders in the economic world, in building a better society, helping identify and address issues that affect the well-being of communities and global society.”

Federico Mayor, Director-General, UNESCO

“For Lufthansa AIESEC represents access to information on the attitudes and preferences of the next generation of managers and customers.  We identify AIESEC people as bright, multilingual, who have worked and/or studied abroad and are therefore likely to be internationally mobile throughout their professional careers.”

Matthias Mölleney, former Senior Vice President, Marketing Division, Lufthansa

“AIESEC produces global citizens who will hopefully understand and practice the values of open society in their companies and communities.  This organisation of bright, enthusiastic young people from all corners of the globe is dedicated to providing international internships that serve both its student members and participating companies and promote understanding between cultures.  The foundations I established and currently fund promotes AIESEC’s activities in many countries…”

George Soros, Chairman, Open Society Institute

“It is my view that AIESEC can be a key channel of communication for our efforts in increasing our profile to the student market.  Through educating students on Ericsson, its products, corporate philosophy and career opportunities we will contribute to the long-term growth of the company.”

Lars A Stalberg, Senior Vice President, Ericsson
