There was a time when students had a limited number of courses to select from. It is not the case today; with major advancements in technology, there is a wide variety of professions and an even wider range of courses catering to them. Although the career options today are immense, one field that remains popular even today is the medicinal field, with a wide range of specialities one can choose from. However, just choosing a field of study is not enough; the educational institute one chooses to study plays a major role in shaping the career of students and, in turn, their futures.
It is imperative that a student choose an institute and their field of study wisely as it can shape their entire life. Founded by Mr Saju Bhaskar in 2010, TEXILA EDUCARE HEALTHCARE AND TECHNOLOGY ENTERPRISES PRIVATE LIMITED is one such organisation which has set the pace for a worldwide educational initiative through its brands and affiliates, namely Texila American University Guyana, Texila American University Zambia, Taksha Smartlabz and partnering with University of Central Nicaragua.

Talking about challenges in his entrepreneurial journey, Mr Saju shares, “I have always seen Challenges as stepping stones to higher achievements. As human beings, we struggle from the moment we are born on this planet.” With TAU operating in different geographies, the cultural assimilation of their management team and ex-pat team was a challenge. They managed to overcome it through cultural integration programs.
