Twenty-six students participated in IISAP in its first two years and have travelled to eight cities in five countries on three continents. Their projects have focused on a variety of fields including communications, information technology, real-estate management, renewable energy, finance, financial research, and hospitality, among others.

The Program, begun with founding partner the LIBRA Group, now counts Coca-Cola, S&B, DIAGEO, Johnson & Johnson, and Athenian Brewery (the last two offer semester abroad scholarships) as partners.
