The AISTS was very happy to welcome students from BiMBA Business School from Peking University to Lausanne. The students visited AISTS for a four day Olympic Capital Course last week. 

The course is tailor-made for the BiMBA students and it entailed various lectures by experts from the field and field trips. It has a special focus on the role of China in the Olympic Movement and the future of sports.
