In 1975, Rania’s family fled from the Middle East War to Europe. She spent her childhood and youth days there.
Rania was bound to be a part of the family business, so she attended Panthéon-Assas University in Paris, where in 1992 she received her first bachelor degree in Economics baccalaureate with honours and a DEUG degree in Law a year later. After that, Rania continued her education at the Sorbonne University from which she graduated and received a degree in International Law in 1995.
A year later, she started her career at the Dupré Law Office as an intern to the lawyer of President, Jacques Chirac. Now, she has been working as a legal advisor at her father company, Dalfa Group to date. Although, the company currently run by her brothers Marwan Dalloul and Ziad Dalloul, but she is also one of the board members of Dalfa Group.
