I was a student at N L Dalmia in the 2002-04 batch. When I opted for Finance, I was told that it would be a tough task… But the kind of effort they took to make me what am today is commendable. The style of working was completely different with use of market oriented practices. We learned markets, valuations and most important usage of excel in the financial modeling. The campus was more of home to us with the comfortable environment, friendly relations with the faculty… an open door environment. The canteen, the library, the projects, the sporting events… made life at Dalmia a pleasure…

NLDIMSR has played a major role in my professional and personal life. It is the place where I started off as a student of MMS – Systems in the 2000-2002 batch and went on to pursue my dual specialization in MMS – Finance in 2004. So I am an alumnus two times over and I have benefitted immensely from the ever approachable and inspiring faculty members. The staff members were always helpful and took care of the students very well. NLDIMSR is an institution that along with focusing primarily on academics also emphasizes moral values & ethics and inculcates discipline among its students that stand them in good stead throughout their professional career.
The institute also gave me the opportunity to be a visiting faculty which helped in channeling my passion for teaching fellow students into an alternate noble profession. NLDIMSR is the place where I made some wonderful friends for life and the time I spent at the institute both as a student and as a faculty shall always be cherished by me my entire life.

It was really a rewarding experience to be a part of the 2001-03 batch. NLDIMSR’s clear focus on strong academics, along with case studies and interactive learning really helped my overall development, professionally as well as personally. I was trained by experienced and well-regarded faculty members, which helped me to understand academic and general management concepts thoroughly. My batch was very competitive, yet fun-loving and the friends that I made would be a treasure for life.

Every day of 2 years spent in N.L.Dalmia not just added intellectual growth but an all-round value system to adapt to ever changing Corporate world and Society at large. It has been good to see that the Institution has prospered academically and the quality/diversity of students has increased over the years

Being a part of NLDIMSR has been as enriching experience. It offered me an opportunity to hone my leadership and general management skills through an exceptionally well researched, interactive and team based approach to learning. When I commenced the programme in 2005, I gave myself two years to challenge my thought process, change my outlook and choose my next step. This could not have been achieved without the remarkable opportunities and strategic tools afforded to me by NLDIMSR. It’s focus on problem solving using real-life scenarios is the perfect grounding for working in any fast-paced and dynamic business environment. The intensity and breadth of the programme prepares you for high pressure situations, complex problem solving and work-life balancing that you can use in your approach to all challenges in your work life”

My experience with N.L. Dalmia College is the most admirable moments of my life. The faculty comprising of distinguished academicians from the best institutions and leading professionals gives you the freedom to think, to express yourself and to succeed. The teaching methods using case studies and extensive group work provides an opportunity to develop an understanding of strategic Human Resource Management and organizational effectiveness. The focus on practical, real world organizational and business issues, combined with academic and scientific rigor has developed in me personal competencies such as self-awareness, presentations, teamwork, and leadership qualities. The friendly attitude of the staff and their willingness to always offer a helping hand has made me feel a part of the N. L. Dalmia family. A brilliant institute not only for HR, but also for other specializations. The 3-year N.L. Dalmia MBA Program had been a fantastic experience.

‘I completed my MMS from NLDIMR in 2004 and recollect the two years as amongst the better years of my life. I look back on my alma-matter with pride having completed my post-graduation program in HR which has truly helped me shape my career in this competitive world. The blend of theory and industry experience which the institute inculcates in its students is very commendable, preparing the leaders of tomorrow.
The robust curriculum taught by an astute faculty covering varied subjects in the first year gave a holistic exposure to general management and the rigorous year two of specialization gave the perfect shape to students towards their aspirational goals in their respective fields. Looking back, I truly cherished the various events and seminars viz; Aakarshan, Mulyankan, Manusandhan to name a few. During our years of studying the institute campus also allowed us to indulge ourselves in sporting activities like basketball, badminton and volleyball which were the much needed breaks from the interesting but tough curriculum.
So too all those who wish to move up and ahead in their careers be it an entrepreneur to a top executive, NLDIMR is just the right mold to give shape to your dreams!’

Completed my PGDBM in the year 2004. NLDIMSR believes in providing holistic education, the curriculum is pretty exhaustive and covers most of the essential topics of business management. This coupled with case studies, role plays, paper presentations and other extra-curricular activities help in grooming the individuals for their professional career. My two years at the alma-mater made me more confident, communicative and knowledgeable. I would recommend it to any individual who aspires to learn and grow. The faculty really focuses on imparting knowledge in the best possible manner effortlessly. Happy to be a Dalmiaite.

“There would be many people, who would share, things you don’t get to learn in any Institute, though, I would say, there are definitely two things I learnt from NLDIMSR – Dedication & Persistence. If you are dedicated to your passion and persistently follow up, not only you would figure out how to do it, but also do it successfully and better than others because of your passion backing it up”
