Find Your Purpose
Daydreaming in the classroom? Got irresistible ideas? Want to make them a reality?
Well, that’s the story of our Founder – Rajesh Panda
Corporate Gurukul was born out of Rajesh’s quest to transform learning. He yearned to make education more relevant to society and more meaningful to people. Himself a product of rote-learning, he discovered the limitations of this kind of education while applying his knowledge and skills in real-life situations and in the corporate world.
Rajesh’s quest to go the distance and combine applied learning, research and project-based pedagogy in the real-world led him to re-discover the ancient ‘gurukul’ system. So, in 2007, Rajesh decided to quit his corporate job and start Corporate Gurukul – to support and train students for the corporate world and life – the ‘gurukul’ way!
The ‘gurukul’ system, which we have adopted, helps you identify your purpose and passion to express your full potential. It also uses hands-on applied learning and real-world research to enhance your knowledge and skills. We welcome you to find your purpose with us so you can shoot for the stars.
We believe that you have infinite potential. It’s how well you identify, harness and shape it that defines your life, your successes and failures. Our constant endeavour is to help you realise this infinite potential, to raise the bar and to offer a competitive edge to help you win.
