Imperial College London - Business school changes name

The Tanaka Business School at Imperial College London - named after its businessman benefactor, Gary Tanaka, who donated £ million for its construction - has changed its name to Imperial College Business School only four years after opening. The university said the change followed research that suggested many were unaware that the school was a part of Imperial. Dr Tanaka will continue to be recognised, with the naming of the school's accommodation as the Tanaka Building.
