About us

Great Place to Study is a global educational research and technology firm, engaged in rating and certifying universities and schools on the basis of satisfaction surveys, both from students and parents. Our certification is a badge of honour bestowed upon institutes after conducting scientific data studies collated by our machine learning enabled student satisfaction survey using 21st-century learning and evaluation practices. Established in 2012, GPTS, earlier known as SkillTree Knowledge Consortium - holding Co., now operates out of London, Delhi and Manila. We cover 23 countries with our offerings.

Mission

Our mission is to create a transparent platform to make the student voice the utmost recognition for institutions and disseminate the same through digital platforms and media publications. GPTS is at the forefront of the social wave poised to bring about progressive education policies to the global education system.

Vision

GPTS envisions to build a world-class community of high-performing schools and universities committed to social good and societal advancement. GPTS intends to challenge the status quo and bring about qualitative change to the education sector and create a better world for the future generations.


The Great Dream

Shekhar A Bhattacharjee

Founder and CEO

We believe that there is a new way to look into everything around us. Anything that we see, use or witness is an outcome of a novel idea, after all. Our passion for education, love for media and fascination for technology gave us an opportunity to look beyond the ways of how institutions were communicating, how they were being compared and whether they were able to create happiness engagement. It was once an idea that institutions should tell stories and not advertise, it was once a dream that students’ voice should be looked upon as the most important tool to bring change and communicate further. It was once a thought that happiness should be measured. The dream to create a platform that would allow institutes to communicate with millions of people through a trusted medium, that would bring students at forefront to evaluate their own institutes, that would look into the best use of technology for delivering a new way of enrolling cohorts, finally started falling in place from dream into a reality in 2012.

Great Place To Study is not just a social enterprise, but it is a 'religion of commitment for the betterment', that grew from 3 people to a 50+ growing team, from 19 to 300 institutes as clients, from one location to across continents and most importantly this growth was without any backing of any large financial institution or investors. The feat is the result of the belief we carry for what we do and how we do.

Great Place To Study 3.0 edition will be our most significant contribution to the student fraternity. We welcome you to join us as colleagues, partners and clients in this endeavour. We promise this journey with us will be a real rendezvous with the values of life and humanity that would be instrumental in creating a better place for the generations to come.

The great team

Every individual at Great Place to Study breathes equal passion and commitment but displays different characteristics. 80% of our core team comprises engineers and media professionals, turned education connoisseurs. Thus, a marriage of technology and media has made us stand out as one of the most innovative and forward-thinking education companies.
