AIESEC International Relocates from Europe to North America

AIESEC International Team 2018-19

 

For the first time in its history, AIESEC has relocated their global headquarters from Europe to North America, specifically from Rotterdam to Montreal. On December 13th, over 100 partners, alumni, and government officials met with the AIESEC leaders in downtown Montreal to celebrate this key milestone for AIESEC.

The search started in fall 2016 when AIESEC International released a call for bids to host the relocation of its global headquarters. Thanks to the efforts of Montreal International, over 30 organizations and various government agencies, AIESEC chose Montreal. AIESEC hopes to replicate the success and positive impact they have had in Europe for 70 years in their new North American headquarters. We welcome AI to this side of the pond and look forward to partnering with them and our fellow Canadian alumni.

The celebration of AIESEC's 70th anniversary continues with the recent launch of an official history book, Capturing 70 Years of Leadership for PeaceIn partnership with ING, this book captures the story of AIESEC's 70 year legacy of developing over 1 million young leaders across the world with a united vision to Strive for Peace and Fulfillment of Humankind’s Potential. We invite our alumni with media contacts to help promote this comprehensive publication. Please contact Aga OkrojGlobal Vice President Public Relations, AIESEC International if you are interested.

Though she studied international economics during college, as AIESEC Georgetown Local Committee President she certainly never imagined living for decades in Germany and the United Kingdom and pursuing a fascinating career managing international business projects all over the world.
