About us

Who We Are?

TPNL started its journey as an educational counseling agency back in February 2000. It all started when TPNL’s CEO, Mr Shariful Islam Khan, returned to Bangladesh upon graduating from University of Canberra and started the Bangladesh office of Granger Educational Services Australia (GESA).

GESA Bangladesh, as it was known during 2000-2007 period, gained high reputation and respect in the educational consultancy industry in Bangladesh for its professional and ethically conducted services to students.

GESA Bangladesh changed its trade name as “The Professional Network (TPNL)” in 2007 when it merged with “The Professionals”- a software manufacturer company. Despite the change of well-known name “GESA Bangladesh”, TPNL remains one of the leading educational counseling agencies in Bangladesh mostly due to the fact that the whole team of “GESA Bangladesh” is still with TPNL with even greater enthusiasm and determination to excel.

TPNL CEO visits USA, UK, and Australia regularly to visit the partner institutions and meet people on campus including existing Bangladeshi students. It is our aim to work with only highly reputed institutions which ensures that we can offer better options to our students.

TPNL has plan to expand its network in the capital’s fast-growing suburb such as Dhanmondi and Uttara. We will soon start offering services in other major cities e.g. Chittagong, Sylhet, Khulna and Rajshahi.
