About the U.S. Middle Market

With revenues between $10MM and $1B, the nearly 200,000 companies that comprise the U.S. middle market encompass 44.5 million jobs, account for one third of total private employment, and generate more than $10 trillion in combined revenues annually. If looked at as an individual market segment, the middle market would be the world’s fifth largest global economy. Obviously, the middle market is critical to America’s competitiveness and future. Remarkably, prior to the advent of the National Center for the Middle Market, little has been known about this segment; even less about how to help it grow.


Fisher College of Business at The Ohio State University is dedicated to training the next generation of business professionals through world-class faculty and a highly innovative curriculum elevated by close partnerships with industry leaders.
