Career Guru is India’s leading leading platform offering skill-enhancing and employment focused programs for students and executives. We do that in partnership with top institutions from around the world. Career Guru benefits tremendously from the fact that our founders come from Ivy League universities and are committed academics and educators, and not some profit seeking and rent searching company trying to sell courses in the garb of educating.
Our founding team has been educated at Cambridge, MIT, Harvard, Oxford, LBS, LSE, Cornell to name a few.
We train the people who train the people who become change agents and create the future.
Career Guru’s vision is to democratise excellence in education and to make it reachable for as many as possible. We want more and more students to learn from the very best in the world in their chosen field and to offer our students best returns on their investment in their education in terms of time, effort, resources and direction. We exist to create excellent managers and global leaders.
Career Guru is an education, lifelong learning and enabling platform. We are academics and will continue to be sharply focused on quality and excellence of teaching, pedagogy, content, delivery and feedback. We only aim to earn enough to sustain this learning platform. Career guru is in the education of business, not in the business of education. We achieve our vision by developing the most engaging, compelling, holistic learning and enabling platform, delivered by brilliant teachers from the best global educational institutions.

Career Guru is already a significant player in this space, especially the custom made program domain. We have intensive in-house capabilities to assess, complete a formal Training Needs Assessment Exercise, consult and advise stakeholders, design a program from a scratch, and deliver it anywhere in the world (as the client chooses) including top institutions like Harvard, MIT, LSE, LBS, Cambridge, Oxford, Cornell etc. The methodology is that once a client settles on a specific TNA it is discussed with their institute of choice, and when agreed mutually, the program can be offered in those institutions, online, or in India. The founders extensive global network, connect and alumni network make this possible at Career Guru. This is a huge value add that only we can offer because of founders’ network, education and background.
We are also proposing to tie-up with various Indian institutions like IIMs and IITs to offer their standardised programs and, if possible, custom-made programs with their faculty, delivered on campus at various IIMs and other institutions of national excellence. We are actively pursuing this opportunity. Stay tuned for more….Soon. Will share the good news with you as soon as we sign something. Stay assured, Career Guru is working tirelessly as your partner to nurture your lifelong, learning journey.
