Business and Community Services is the point of contact for local and regional businesses seeking to work directly with faculty and students of the Rusche College of Business. We provide assistance to the community by leveraging the expertise of our faculty and students, most often by assigning class projects or connecting industry directly with faculty who have expertise in a particular area.

Using our database of faculty expertise and course topics and projects, we match local and regional businesses and industries with the resources and people who can help them.

If you’re interested in our services, contact Dr. Marcus Cox, BCS coordinator, at or 936.468.3830.

Proudly sponsored by Mustang Cat, a premier corporate partner with the College of Business.
