Journey of AIESEC in BINUS started in 2010. In October 2010, BINUS University International Office initiated the Expansion Team recruitment and together with AIESEC Indonesia, ten candidates were selected. Another selection process resulted in a five-member expansion team. The team had to go through various phases of activities and evaluation before becoming an official chapter of the organization.
Despite the challenges the team faced, such as getting new members to join the program, engaging external stakeholders, overcoming knowledge barrier, these provided great avenues in developing responsible and entrepreneurial leaders–dynamic AIESECers!
In its 2.5- years of development, AIESEC BINUS has been awarded:
- Best Expansion Team Leader (October 2011)
- Best Expansion Team (January 2012)
- Incoming Exchange Global Internship Program Frenzy Matching Award (January 2013)
Being an official Local Committee in the AIESEC global network after a relatively short period compared is significant to all our dynamic BINUS AIESECers. We hope many more join them. Congratulations, BINUS AIESEC!
