The Lorange Network was founded by Dr. Peter Lorange to provide real-world learning digitally. His own career as a family business owner and his lifelong learning and practice of academic excellence are part of the Lorange Network’s philosophy.

Dr. Peter Lorange was involved in his family business S. Ugelsad, founded in 1929 until 2006 when he sold the company and started his own Family Office. Today S. Ugelstad Invest operates as a highly diversified portfolio family business, with investments in 5 major areas and through over 30 activities.

For 15 years, Prof. Lorange held the position of President of IMD, a global leader in business education, based in Lausanne, Switzerland. He also founded the Lorange Institute, for executive education in Horgen, near Zurich, which he later sold to CEIBS.
