Texas’ top business leaders now have a chance to voice their opinions about the state of the economy.

Thanks to a partnership between the college’s Real Estate Center (REC) and Compass Bank, businesses are being surveyed about their thoughts for future economic conditions. The survey, called the Business Leaders Confidence Index (BLCI), targets organizations with at least $5 million in sales.

Execs answer questions about sales, profits, hiring, expenditures, interest rate expectations and the state/national economic outlook. Results of the survey are compiled on a quarterly basis.

According to Jim Leigh, an associate professor of marketing, the index provides information to business leaders in Texas, as well as provides good exposure for the college’s REC.
