Dillon has impressive ambitions for his career. He is hoping to get an MBA from either Stanford Graduate School of Business or Harvard Business School and then leveraging his degree and connnections to ultimately gain a leadership position in big tech sustainability initiatives.
Currently a project manager, he has started and sold an equity stake in a small business venture. Originally hired as an assisant, he gained promotions to a manager and eventually a small ownership stake of two properties in Havana, Cuba for company based on Toronto.
He’s starting early, applying to the deferred admission programs at both HBS and the GSB. Born in Frankfurt, Germany, Dillon is now a senior at the University of Maryland with a 3.65 GPA in physics. He has also studied abroad in Florence, Italy for three months.
