Professional, prestigious, exclusive looking. Please see http://www.andover.edu for one example of a professional seal. We are looking to put words like "AKAMAI Finance Academy" as the name of the institution, "Ma Ka Hana Ka Ike" as the motto. It would also be good if we can have "AKAMAI Foundation" on there somewhere to denote the parent organization which administers the AKAMAI Finance Academy.
Please also visit http://www.akamaiinitiative.org for more information about our organization. You will see on this page a graphic of the Hawaiian Island chain. This may/may not be incorporated into the logo, we currently use this graphic on our other marketing materials. We just want some kind of Hawaiian tie-in.
Also, when we talk about the high finance industry, it means hedge funds, investment banking, and asset management. These are the pinnacle of the finance industry, the hardest to get jobs, the highest paying jobs. We want students to feel proud to be apart of the AFA, that they have done well to get here, and with our help they will continue to grow and succeed. Think of other prestigious institutions like Harvard, Princeton, MIT, etc.
