  • frequently asked questions

    How does AIESEC differ from other exchange providers?

    AIESEC exchange programmes (Global Talent and Global Citizen) go beyond the job itself with emphasis put on the cross cultural experience participants gain alongside their pro-fessional experience. As an example, whilst overseas you will have the opportunity to con-nect with other foreign students participating in our exchange programmes. Local AIESEC members will also give you the unique opportunity to arrive in a foreign country with a readymade support network waiting for you. AIESEC is your gate to an international net-work.
