We live in a world where many cultures and languages merge together. It is concerned with how to develop relationships among people from different backgrounds in order to studying and working effectively in the different cultural background environment. Therefore, it is clear that intercultural conflict may occur during the communication process between people from different backgrounds. This research examines cultural differences which caused conflict on Morning Sunshine Project held by AIESEC in President University in 2016. The purposes of this research are to know what makes the intercultural conflict occur among Exchange Participants of AIESEC in President University and to know how the Exchange Participants of AIESEC in President University solve those intercultural conflicts. This research will employ qualitative methodology with descriptive qualitative approach. By using an online interview, data were collected from 5 Exchange Participants who come from 5 different countries. This research shows that intercultural conflict is not only about two parties with different cultural background who fight against each other but also about the uncomfortable feelings because of cultural differences and stereotype between individuals. To solve the intercultural conflict, participants chose collaboration, accommodation and avoidance as their conflict resolution.
