Not all successful leaders are born with a golden spoon in their mouth; many climb to the top because of their sheer tenacity and never-say-die attitude. One such visionary personality was Late Shri Niranjanlal ji Dalmia, the Founder Chairman of N. L. Dalmia Educational Society. Coming from an extremely humble background, Late Shri Niranjanlal ji was born in a small town of Northern India, Bhiwani. In a time when pursuing quality primary education was a big deal, Shri Niranjanlal ji moved to Delhi and pursued Law education from Hindu College, in between managing funds for his education by tutoring his peers. From emerging as a Gold Medallist of his College to later earning the 2nd position in the Indian Civil Service exam, Shri Niranjanlalji gave up the British job after joining Gandhiji's Freedom Movement. His hardwork and dedication won him working partnership at an Indian Business house.

Throughout his journey, the belief that was constant for him was -education is the biggest enabler and equalizer. This made him initiate the N.L.Dalmia Educational Society in 1982, under which run two Schools of Excellence, N.L.Dalmia High School & N.L.Dalmia Institute of Management Studies & Research. "The whole purpose behind establishing this institute was to create a stronger Society and a stronger Nation by providing quality professional education," says Seema Saini, CEO, N.L.Dalmia Educational Society. Manifesting excellence for over two decades now in the field of Management studies, NLDIMSR which is counted amongst the best B-Schools in the country is widely recognized for relinquishing management quota, letting aspirants get enrolled explicitly based on their merits and being the pioneer to install a
fullfledged 12-Terminal Bloomberg Lab. Mrs. Saini reiterates, "The ethos on which this society has been established by our respected Founder Chairman is being successfully carried forward by Mr. Shailesh Dalmia, the Hon. Secretary of Niranjanlal Dal-mia Educational Society." Affiliated to the University of Mumbai, NLDIMSR runs wide-ranging programmes including Master in Management Studies (MMS) in Finance, Marketing, and HR, PGDM program, which is approved and recognized by AICTE and Ministry of HRD, along with conducting varied Management programmes for working professionals and latest FinTech courses. Mrs. Saini adds, "In an attempt at giving a global edge to the management education, the management has commenced a specialized Global MBA program, in which the students complete the part 1 (11 months) at NLDIMSR and part 2 at University of Wisconsin Parkside, USA. The University is accredited by the AACSB and The Higher Learning Commission, a commission of the North Central Association."
