IIM Ahmedabad postpones launch of new logo as some members protest change
The Board of Governors (BoG) of the Indian Institute of Management Ahmedabad (IIMA) has decided to postpone the launch of its new logo, the Chairman of the Board of the renowned business and industrial school, Kumar Mangalam, announced on Wednesday. Birla, a decision that comes against the backdrop of a section of faculty members opposing a proposed change in the logo.
Notably, some faculty members at the first management institute had raised an objection to a proposed change to IIMA’s logo through a letter to the BoG earlier this month. They had complained in the letter that the decision to change the logo was made without any consultation. “We had a discussion today around the issue of the logo and the board decided to leave it on hold (launch of a new logo) from now on. Errol D’Souza (director of the IIMA) will publish it for wider consultation and input, and we will come back to it,” Birla told reporters here. The Chairman of the Board of Governors said the new IIMA logo was due to launch in June, but has now been postponed. Birla was here to attend IIMA’s 57th Annual Convocation. “A lot of people had their emotions attached to the existing logo, so we thought it was right to consider everyone’s opinion (before releasing a new logo),” Birla said when asked for the reason for postponement.
