Cooperation – ETH Alumni and the Lorange Institute

Dear reader

About six weeks ago I gave a presentation at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich, better known amongst most of you as the ETH (an acronym for the German Eidgenössische Technische Hochschule).

The ETH – as you see, even I stick to this term – is one of the most recognized technical academies all over the world and its reputation is undisputed still.

So, it was there that I gave a presentation on my life as an entrepreneur. For the ETH is more than only a technical university. It also offers a wide range of post-graduate education, including an MBA with a specialization in supply change management.

The ETH Alumni and the Lorange Institute of Business agreed on a cooperation.

Twice a year we offer a so-called management refresher program, a five-day seminar under the leadership of Prof. Uwe Hilzenbecher.

The next offering is from
March 4 to March 8, 2013

The module offers a comprehensive and hands-on introduction to the latest management approaches, including the most relevant techniques to successfully run your business.

It will in particular discuss the basis of management approaches in areas such as general management, marketing, operations, finance, HR, and leadership. It is thus suited to accelerate his or her career by successfully mastering new challenges in business.

Alumni of the ETH can profit double from this offer.

Simply get in touch with us via e-mail ( or give us a call. Our team will be glad to help you with further information.

Looking forward to meeting you in Horgen!
