On 20 October and 8 November, the youth organisation AIESEC gave a lecture and a presentation of its project entitled Global School of Entrepreneurship for Savremena’s students at ISS premises in Vračar.
More practical work at school
The international student organisation AIESEC gathers young people from all over the world and helps them develop their leadership potential by enabling them to volunteer and gain professional experience in both national and international projects.
The theoretical knowledge acquired at school usually isn’t sufficient for full professional development, which is why this organisation provides young people with a global platform they can use to gain experience and learn in an environment that supports such development.
AIESEC project for students
AIESEC presented its work and mission to Savremena’s students, and introduced them to a project that falls within their area of interest.
Owing to an interesting presentation, the students learned how they can be a part of AIESEC’s youth programme and collaborate with world-renowned business experts as their mentors. Savremena’s students were invited to become representatives of this project designed to help them discover their ideal profession, learn a bit more about the business world, but also to develop leadership skills, broaden their contact network and prepare themselves for a prosperous future in business.
In addition to new knowledge and valuable experience, upon completing the project, the students will also receive a certificate enabling them to rank higher when applying for university.
What do AIESEC and Savremena have in common?
Both institutions are committed to the idea of providing young people with as much experience as they need throughout their education.
During these presentations, Savremena’s students broadened their horizons and learnt about the importance of practical work in education, which is something they often experience by working on serious projects at their school.
