For Release Upon Receipt - March 2, 2010
The Arthur Lok Jack Graduate School of Business (GSB) of The University of the West Indies (UWI) unveiled a new image and logo at the Hyatt Regency, Port of Spain, Trinidad on February 24th, 2010. As part of a campaign to promote the school, the new image includes a new logo and motto capturing the essence of the Lok Jack GSB.
The logo, shaped by the letters ALJ, symbolises a pathway to a future filled with opportunity for the graduates of the School, and is crowned by a golden arch of enlightenment. The motto, “Innovatus Ars Ducendi” essentially means “Innovating the Art of Leadership,” the core concept of the Lok Jack GSB’s vision and mission for the future of business education in Trinidad and Tobago.
Angel Alvarado, Strategic Marketing Director at the Lok Jack GSB, stated at the launch that the ‘Leaders Wanted’ and ‘Are you up to the Challenge?’ campaign “is an invitation to all who want to be part of reshaping the future of Trinidad and Tobago and the Caribbean.”
At the unveiling, the Business School also introduced its new programme, the MSc International Finance, which is aimed at individuals already involved in areas of Finance. Ram Ramesh, Programme Director of the MSc International Finance, said that, “the need for the programme came out of what came in the last 18-24 months with the global financial collapse,” noting that “what stuck was how the Central Bank and world leaders struggled to get their hands around the crisis.”
Attendees at the unveiling were also invited to attend the Free Finance Forum, entitled “Global Financial Meltdown – Market Correction or Human Greed?” on February 25th at 6 pm at the Lok Jack GSB.
