The Professional Network & Link, popularly known as 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 professionalism and for offering ethically conducted services to students.
GESA Bangladesh changed its trade name as “The Professional Network & Link (TPNL)” 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’s new operation in Nepal has brought an overwhelming opportunity to students from Nepal who were in search of genuine counselling about abroad study plan, student visa guidance, the best test preparation and many others.
