Lorange Institute in Zurich, which was established in 2009 by the eponymous Peter Lorange, who was the leading light of Lausanne-based IMD for 15 years before setting up his own school. The Graduate School of Business Administration Zurich (GSBA Zurich) is the oldest and largest business school in German-speaking Europe.The school was founded in 1968 as "Oekreal Management Zentrum" offering Swiss professional degreesIt was an international Business School (accredited by EDUQUA) at lakeside Zurich, Switzerland. In July 2009 Peter Lorange, former IMD president, bought GSBA Zurich. GSBA offers master of Science Programs in Marketing, HRM, Finance, MIS/IT, OM/Logistics, two Bachelor Programs like BBA and BSC as well as an international PhD Program. All of those programs are part-time for working executives. The school also offers a World Executive MBA being the first academic alliance in Business administration offering management modules in fundamental disciplines of business administration on five continents in Brazil, South Africa, India, Russia and Switzerland. For CEIBS the choice of Switzerland was important, as the country is situated in the center of Europe, with a neutral status vis-à-vis the major European countries, and with a high attractiveness ranking. And, selecting the Lorange Institute was equally natural for CEIBS. The fact that the Lorange Institute has no permanent faculty, but relies exclusively on drawing on faculty from other academic institutions, was seen as attractive to CEIBS as this ensures that there will be no major issues of cross-cultural integration of faculty. The Lorange Institute of Business Zurich – A member of CEIBS Group - is the European Campus of CEIBS. It offers top-level education like our CEIBS GLOBAL Executive MBA (ranked #13, Financial Times 2016).
