Major: Business • Hometown: Portland, Oregon
He was a star lacrosse player and two-time team captain at Westview High School in Portland, Oregon, who traveled all over the country to play, yet Ben Ludeman said his “defining moment” in high school was when his anthropology teacher accepted his offer to do an independent study with her about child soldiers in Africa. The curriculum was laid out and Ben wrote two essays that spelled out the problem and potential solutions.
In the Dominican School of Business and Leadership, Ben will be challenged by real-world problems in undergraduate programs such as accounting, finance, international business, management and marketing. His concentration is in marketing, but he also is intrigued by sports management.
