The Programme currently covers 10 study fields, including Hospitality and Tourism, Agriculture, Language and Culture, International Business, Food Science and Technology, Engineering, Economics, Environmental Management and Science, Biodiversity and Marine Science. By 2015, it has been ambitiously agreed as a short-term goal among AIMS member countries that at least 500 students will be mobilized across the region, with expanding disciplines as well as membership.
