Meet Dino,  Founder of Do Better Academy

A native of Croatia, Dino spent his childhood dreaming of becoming a professional tennis player. Upon accepting a Division 1 tennis scholarship at the University of Minnesota, his course changed, and he soon dedicated his life to a new, bigger passion: helping others achieve their goals and succeed through highly personalized career and admissions consulting.

Dino has spent the last 10 years building his personal advisory brand as a University of Minnesota Peer Career Coach and founder of Wall Street Wannabe, a frequented online resource center dedicated to inspiring and coaching the next generation of banking and investment professionals.

Dino is a firm believer that without defined goals and a roadmap for getting there, we can get stuck and end up somewhere we don’t recognize or want to be. While changes in each individual course is inevitable, he believes you cannot place a price on perseverance and a drive to do better.

Dino earned his BS in Finance and Communications from the Carlson School of Management (CSOM), and earned his MBA from Harvard Business School. Upon graduation from CSOM, he spent two years as an investment banker at RBC Capital Markets and two years as an Associate for Diamond Castle Holdings in New York City. Following business school, he launched Do Better Academy to continue to live out his passion for personal and professional development.
