INTERNATIONAL THEME PROGRAMMES A shift of focus to member education and talent development to prepare AIESEC members for a future in the business environment occurred. Alignment of the global association as a whole led to the emergence of International Theme Programs (ITP). Henceforth, these became a formal part of AIESEC. Pioneers to this new initiative were “Management Education in the 80’s” (1976-1978) and “International Trade” (1978-1980). Under the ‘umbrella’ of the international theme, projects were run independently in a local, national and regional level in recognition of the rapidly changing world. However, these themes still left much to be desired such as a truly international theme with involvement of all committees including those involved in researching the theme.

Nevertheless, awareness across nations was attained through the engagement of students, business people, academia and the community.
