MCVP Outgoing GCDP 2013-2014 General Questions 1. What is your inner motivation to apply in the MC of AIESEC Romania 2013 – 2014? I would like you to know that AIESEC is the best thing that has ever happened to me. In my 2 yearsof activity I have experienced an extraordinary development. Here is learned to think big, to want more,to be great and to change the world. For me the AIESEC experience that I have had this far has been challenging and yet enjoyable. Ithas taught me a great deal and really developed me as a person, but I still believe that I have notlearned and experienced all of what AIESEC can offer me. That is why I have decided to go a step furtherto take on a bigger challenge and apply for the MC of 13/14 as this will in my opinion not only developme further, but also test me to the limits. 2. What is the leadership that the World & Romania is expecting from AIESEC? In theory, Leadership is "organizing a group of people to achieve a common goal". The leader may ormay not have any formal authority. Students of leadership have produced theories involving traits,situational interaction, function, behavior, power, vision and values, charisma, and intelligence, amongothers. Somebody whom people follow: somebody who guides or directs others. So, I don’t really believe that World & Romania is expecting a type of leadership from AIESEC. Iconsider that leadership is something that you create through your way of being. For me, leadership isthe growth and development of people, is something special in you is something that you believe in andyou strive for it to become better and better in the way that you feel comfortable. Whatever kind ofleader you are, you should be a good one.
3. Having in mind a SWOT analysis for AIESEC in Romania, what is the role of AIESEC in Romania? Based on that, how can AIESEC in Romania be more relevant? Strong Weak Subprograms Decrease of exchange Numbers of TMP/TLP numbers The Human resource is working for Our LCs don’t know how exchange plan (safe / unrealistic Monthly profit planning ) MC financial stability Nobody reached their 2 International conferences planned objectives Network visibility The Exchange has not been legalized Quarterly planning Quality of TMP/TLP LC consultant Losing the summer peak for exchange NPS testing by AI => visibility &quality Lack of implementation of OGX recruitments Matching bottlenecks Opportunities Threats Partnerships with different companies and A small market of students with second organizations language excellent Internship accreditation at Universities Low quality on GCDP internships Romania – UE Country Competitive market in the NGOs sector EVS Economical crisisAnalyzing the Weak points of AIESEC Romania we can notice that the organization has to be orientedtowards quality and taking action. Considering our exchange orientation I believe it’s time to focus onthe quality of products we deliver and the quality of our members. In order to increase our relevance inthe society I believe we need to open up to the external environment to a higher decree. It’s highlyimportant to know our market but it’s even more important for the market to know us by the quality ofour products.My opinion is that the LCs in the country need to be educated to strive forexcellence not just settle with the concept that volunteering is enough. There is athin line between real development and volunteering just for the sake of it and Ithink that we are all aware on which side we need to be.
4. AIESEC Romania is halfway towards our 2015 midterm ambition. Evaluate our key achievements from 2010 and key things that should happen in the next 3 years. I consider that the most important thing in the next term is to continue what MC 12/13 started. The fact that our final product is Exchange but this should be clear for every member. Every AIESEC Romania member should understand why are we doing Exchange. Also we should continue with One Team vision because this make us believe that we are not singles…we work in a big Team with special people who can always help us. • Growing physical & virtual reach • AIESEC to become a larger platform, to engage more young people with AIESEC, our purpose and our values, through more connection apart from Global Youth directly join in our core programs, thus involving more incredible and Voice diversified youth voice. • Collaborative environment • Cross-generation impact Positive • More focus on product evolution for empowering high-quality AIESEC impact experience • Across sectors • To be market leader in developing responsible & entrepreneurial leadership First-chioce • To have collaborative market presence, common value in relation and active customer engagement partnerEngage & Develop Every Young People in the WorldAs a value-based platform driven by youth, AIESEC 2015 strives for greater relative impact for the youth,for the cross-sector external partners and for the society.

7. In 2014, AIESEC in Romania is the winner of the Global Excellence UBS award. Explain why.In 2014, thanks to a significantly increase on GIP & GCDP both numerically and NPS wise, AIESECRomania received the UBS. We all know that we have been very close to winning this prize for sometime now, as we had excellent results with TMP and TLP experiences, our financial resources wereplentiful and the organization was recognized as the strongest in the country throughout the numerousexternal prizes we had received during the years. The only things we have been missing in comparisonto other countries were the quality and numbers of the exchange, both incoming and outgoing. We oweour previous MC everything, because they were the ones who had to courage to change the nationaldirection towards exchange, Continuing in this direction, we managed to increase the figures, butimportantly not just a few LCs sustain these figures, all our LCs share their contributions, thanks toobjectives and good directions set by each LC.
