About IAESTE CMU
IAESTE Carnegie Mellon serves as a student-run leadership organization on the Carnegie Mellon campus. We provide a more tangible way for Carnegie Mellon students to gain greater cultural awareness through promoting and contributing to IAESTE international programs and hosting on-campus events.
IAESTE International Internship Placement Program
Specifically IAESTE CMU works with the university and local area employers to locate internships for international IAESTE participants. IAESTE LC members then receive reciprocal opportunities to work around the world. The LC is also instrumental in hosting and providing a social network for international IAESTE trainees.
The direct goal of our LC is to promote the benefits of international exchange and global leadership on the Carnegie Mellon campus through organized activities, events, and meetings. We most recently host Cultural Etiquette Dinners, Global Seminar Series, and Language Workshops.
