About the Logo
This logo is born out of the idea of "Celebration of Learning'. It takes the shape of a human form with out- stretched arms signaling the spirit of achievement and fulfillment. The freshness of Orange captures the vibrancy of the Institutes culture. The subtle shape of the Blue between the arms also indicates a flame - a traditionally recognized symbol of education. The logo design combines tradition with a contemporary touch. IIM Trichy as the base unit forms the foundation for that learning and growth.
