This AIESEC ANU was founded in January 2009 by Kara Grimsley (part of AIESEC National Committee for Australia), we have developed strongly, especially in the areas of Outgoing Exchange and Marketing. Our key supporters at present include the ANU Human Resource Department, The College of Business and Economics and the ANU Deputy Registrar.
In 2010, we sent 10 ANU students out into the world for their internships. We ran events for Microsoft, IE International Business School, Oxfam and Reckon. This website was setup at the end of 2010. In 2011, we’ve ran another event for Microsoft. Our Incoming Exchange portfolio secured our first internship opportunity in Canberra with Emagine.
In 2012, we’ve set up targets high. Quadrupling our membership count, ICX results and OGX results.
Did you know AIESEC ANU has a long history all the way to 1980s, but the records were lost and the history is murky…
Meet the Team:
Our team consists of 7 portfolios:
Finance is not just for bookkeeping, it is invaluable to the operation of AIESEC ANU. Finance covers the compliance of financial reporting and control, as well as prudent management of risk without allowing this to hinder innovation. Finance supports the growth of AIESEC ANU by providing analytical insight into our investments. It operates at both the strategic level and lowest level of detail. Finance can be separated into Financial Operations, Financial Maintenance, Financial Strategy, and Legal & Taxation.
Information Management (IM)
The Information Management portfolio is a unique team that conducts data analysis, security, reporting, knowledge management, and continuous user experience improvement. By using a variety of applications and platforms, IM makes sure there is a smooth lateral and vertical information flow. Lateral means information flow across different portfolios, so that every portfolio works in unison and with as much information awareness of the situation as possible. Vertical information flow so that there is accountability and transparency in AIESEC ANU’s work. This also means retrieving and disseminating information about opportunities that are in AIESEC’s global network. IM also keeps track of our analytic tasks for knowledge management and endeavors to improve the work procedure by implementing new technology. With all the information that IM processes, they are in a unique position to conduct user experience improvements by increasing communication efficiency.
Talent Management (TM)
The Talent Management portfolio is the earthy roots of AIESEC, focusing on keeping members happy, engaged, and ensuring their continued development. Talent Management is integral to the function of AIESEC in delivering credible practical leadership development through our core work, leadership positions and conferences. The main functions of Talent Management can be separated into Training and Development, Experience Management, Integration of AIESEC values and purpose, and Member Logistics.
Incoming Exchange (ICX)
The Incoming Exchange portfolio is one of our two exchange arms of AIESEC. AIESEC internships are essentially exchanges between different AIESEC local committees in the world. The ICX portfolio creates internship opportunities in Canberra and takes in Exchange Participants (EPs) from other parts of the world. This means the ICX portfolio not only engages in sales and negotiations with corporate and non-corporate organizations in Canberra, but also provides hospitality service to the incoming EP. The main parts of ICX include Customer Relationship Management, Prospecting & Sales, Incoming EP Hospitality, and Selection of Incoming EPs.
Outgoing Exchange (OGX)
The Outgoing Exchange portfolio is the other exchange arm of AIESEC ANU and generates the most impact in terms of providing life changing internship experiences. The OGX portfolio manages the interviews and selection of potential Exchange Participants from the ANU. They ensure that Exchange Participants will be matched with a suitable internship overseas, and provides support throughout the experience. The portfolio does not only work in areas of sending Exchange Participants onto exchanges, but also to aid returning Exchange Participants the opportunity to re-integrate back into AIESEC ANU as well. The main parts of the OGX portfolio can be separated into Exchange Participant Production, Exchange Participant Hospitality, and Exchange Participant Integration.
Marketing and Communications (MAC)
The Marketing and Communications portfolio is the voice of AIESEC and its products. What we do affects how students and other stakeholders perceive AIESEC. MAC focuses on building consistent AIESEC brand image on and off campus. The work in the MAC portfolio mainly includes running marketing campaigns, organizing social events and promoting AIESEC through multiple social media channels such as the AIESEC ANU website and facebook. Hence it is important for us to understand AIESEC’s vision and feel comfortable in selling AIESEC products of leadership development opportunities and exchange programs. The fun part of MAC is that it is the portfolio with the greatest capacity for creativity and free expression. There is no set path for planning and carrying out an effective campaign. We can be as innovative as possible and not frightened to take risks in trying out new ways of doing things.
External Relations (ER)
The External Relations portfolio handles the relationship between AIESEC ANU, other student societies and university institutions. ER organizes joint events and cross-promotions with other student societies, while also researching on our competitors. ER also makes sure we are utilizing our university institutions to the fullest extent, and looks for opportunities to create mutual gain between different entities while on-campus. The ER portfolio works closely with MAC to deliver events and to provide marketing avenues. Finally the ER portfolio keeps our Alumni in contact. The main parts of ER can be separated into Corporate Relations, University Relations and Alumni Relations.
