Collaborate with top-tier academics to lead journal quality research addressing important business and policy challenges to the middle market.
Despite the middle market’s position as a leading indicator of the overall health of the U.S. economy, the market has been largely understudied. The National Center for the Middle Market aspires to partner with top researchers from around the world who share our passion and appreciation for the middle market. With your help, we can achieve our goal of thoroughly exploring and understanding the middle market.
Ultimately, the Center seeks to broaden the knowledge base for middle market researchers, companies, policy makers, and business students by serving as the leading source of reliable, and thought-provoking content, critical analysis, and actionable insights pertaining to the middle market. To that end, we fund ongoing proprietary and commissioned research. We widely distribute the resulting reports, presentations, and journal articles for consumption, comment, and dialogue.
We encourage you to get involved by submitting a grant proposal to get your research funded. You can also explore research currently being conducted by our Fellows or connect with faculty in your area of study. Together, we can continue providing the thought leadership that influences the success of the vital middle market.
