Corporate Gurukul, a global edtech venture headquartered in Singapore, believes that offline teaching is the best option for both tutors and students. As a result, when the COVID-19 pandemic broke out in 2020, business came to a screeching halt as the company did not have any online offerings.

“We had to pivot to the online model as our revenues had come down by one-fifth,” says Rajesh Panda, Founder and CEO of Corporate Gurukul, in a conversation with YourStory, adding that business has managed to bounce back to pre-COVID-19 levels.

He adds the team does not believe in amassing as many students as possible and follows one motto — if you are the best, we will help you become better.

At present, Corporate Gurukul provides short-term upskilling courses and only targets students from top tier educational institutions — IITs, BITs, or NITs — through partnerships with elite universities in Singapore. The focus is on ensuring students are better prepared for a corporate career or simply upskilling to be better equipped for higher studies.

Rajesh says, “We want our students to get ready for the corporate world through an experiential form of learning, which is relevant for the society as whole.” Read more.
