NMIMS Deemed to be University (as per UGC Norms) establishes fresh identity
The SVKM trust dreamt to create an institution that was a preferred partner for the industry and a chosen destination for management education in the country. It had the ambition to reach out to the world through its programmes and research initiatives. The management school, 32 years old has today lived up to the dream.
Dr. Rajan Saxena, Vice Chancellor, NMIMS Deemed to be University (as per UGC Norms) said, “the new logo reflects our passion for knowledge, growth, and recognition at the national and global level. It is a logo that inspires the community to innovate, think out of box and reach out to the world with new products that connect with existing and potential customers, new market segments that so far remained outside the radar. The new identity represents the new energy of NMIMS as a young university of the 21st century that aspires to create new paradigms for higher education”.
The symbolic representation of inherent qualities and vision of NMIMS is represented in the new identity by four elements that are(a) Elephant -the largest land mammal admired for wisdom, knowledge, strength and loyalty (b) Black bands representing books i.e. knowledge (c) Red quadrant that denotes passion (d) Laurel wreath that shows achievement.
Students of the University were very excited to see the new identity and the way it was unveiled us was just surreal. They loved the change because it is very contemporary and impactful.
Dr. Rajan Saxena, Vice Chancellor, Deemed to be University (as per UGC Norms) said “As an institution NMIMS has the wisdom and knowledge of a 32 year old professional but the energy, enthusiasm and aggression of a 10 year old child and we intend to keep it that way”.
