Project Assistance

Get Project Assistance from Missouri State University

Each year our center works closely with small business clients and Missouri State University classes on special projects. These projects give business owners fresh insights while providing students with real-world experience and business insights. Undergraduate and graduate level classes work on projects related to marketing, management, and more.
