Director's Profile


Dr. Balasubramanian V.
Director – NES and SVB

Dr. Balasubramanian. V. (Bala) is the Director of NES and SVB Group of 69 educational institutions. As a people-oriented person, he has driven the group's growth and popularity to greater heights working alongside the group's Founder-President for the last 28 years. He has a Doctor of Business Administration degree, specializing in Marketing, from Walden University, USA. In 2014, Walden University conferred on him the Commitment to Social Change Scholarship. He obtained his Masters in Business Administration degree from University of Wales, UK.

Some of his major initiatives in the group have been in assisting Dr R Varadarajan in the setting up of professional college projects like SVB's College of Pharmacy (1998) and SVB's Saraswathi College of Education and Research (2004) at Dombivli (East), Dist. Thane. Both, the NES National Public School (2003) and NES International School Mumbai - IB World School (2005), have gained tremendously from his leadership, and are ranked amongst the most prestigious schools in Mumbai. In 2009, Hindustan Times ranked NES International School as the No. 1 School in North Mumbai. In 2015, Times of India ranked NES International School at No. 3 among Internationals schools in the entire Mumbai Metropolitan area.

As a social entrepreneur, he is committed to social change through education. The NES School for Hearing Impaired and the SVB's U.M. Thevar School at Dharavi, Mumbai are the corporate social responsibility initiatives of the Group, which he closely oversees. As yet another step towards social change, he also helps manage the MCGM Parel English School, a first-of-its-kind partnership between the public and private sectors for providing education to the underprivileged in Mumbai. In March 2017 Education World magazine profiled him as one of the rising stars in the field of education1. In May 2017, Mid-Day, a leading newspaper, felicitated him with the Youth Icon of the Year in Education Industry award2. In February 2018, Education Today Magazine has profiled him as one among the top 50 leading visionaries in the field of education in India. In April 2018, ‘The Qualitative Report,’ an international journal on business and management, has published his journal article in their April 2018 volume 23, Number 4 issue.

Based on the perspective that parents are crucial stakeholders, he counts on their participation and creates platforms for their involvement in the learning process. He believes that innovation is the key to success of any school and has introduced various technological interventions to improve the pedagogical practices in all the institutions of NES and SVB.

His entrepreneurial drive prompts him to regard education as much more than a means to ensure mere livelihood. The gap between haves and have-nots has increased with globalization, and education today must empower all children to make informed decisions that will improve their quality of life as well as the lives of the people around them. Far more than educating students to become breadwinners, he aims to develop wealth creating capabilities in them.
