A graduate of the University of Texas and the Harvard Business School, Sandefer taught entrepreneurship at the University of Texas before founding the Acton School of Business. Acton's MBA program is taught by "entrepreneur-teachers" offering students a "personal introduction" to employers listed on a 66-strong company list. According to Acton's website, "For each of the firms on our Company List, a partner, executive, or alumnus of the program has pledged to personally shepherd a student through the recruiting process if asked to do so by a professor."[2]

Sandefer is the great-grandson of Jefferson Davis Sandefer, who served as the President of Simmons University (later Hardin Simmons University), Austin, for more than 30 years until his death in 1940.

In 1993, The Texas Ethics Commission found Sandefer to have violated the Texas Election Code for failing to disclose campaign expenditure in excess of $7000.
