Almost a year ago, on a hot day, I was walking through the West Mall Complex at SFU when I noticed a particular poster that stood out from the rest. The poster caught my eye because it had images of ice cream. Curious, I actually read the copy of the poster (a rarity for me) and learned more about AIESEC SFU.
Fast forward to today, and I can honestly say that joining AIESEC has been one of the most rewarding things I’ve done since coming back to school full-time. I’ve gained some valuable skills through AIESEC. More importantly though, I’ve met many amazing people through it.
What does it stand for?
I often get asked what the acronym AIESEC stands for. To this day, I still can’t tell you – and that’s because it’s in French. According to Wikipedia, the acronym stands for “Association Internationale des Étudiants en Sciences Économiques et Commerciales. If you’re expecting me to pronounce that, then you’re out of luck.
