After graduating from New York University in 2006, Ben Roberts didn’t immediately land his dream job. Instead, he spent his days selling cars at a small dealership in Texas after funding for a startup fell through. When that season came to a close, he made a pivot to the world of higher education, where he finally discovered his calling: helping students fulfill their destinies. Ben holds an MBA from Baylor University and lives in Fort Worth, Texas with his wife, Sara, and two children, Moses and Esther. He spends his days championing the success of international and first-generation students searching for college.
Dr. Lee Brown
Lee Brown serves as Professor of Management to MBA students at Texas Woman’s University. A Ph.D. in Business Strategy from the UT Arlington, Brown teaches students the art of competitive decision making. His coursework has shown him that students perfectly willing to devote hours to a classroom assignment rarely devote the same attention to their education and career path. In The Unbranded Student, Brown has harnessed the powerful tools used by the marketplace to empower high school and college students in one of the most important decisions of their lives.
