The AIESEC Exchange Standards.

Standards are a measure to validate the quality of Leadership Development Experiences provided by the entities of AIESEC globally. We call these the 16 Exchange Standards, wherein they are grouped into 4 different Blocks and handled by the AIESEC HOST and HOME entities whereas the NPS or the Net Promoter score is a survey that will help us (AIESECers) measure and validate the the satisfaction delivered.

You receive the above assessment in the form of questions as shown below to which you simply have to answer with YES/NO.
