Explore career and learning opportunities available only from the middle market.

If you’re a business student, you can’t afford to ignore the rich and rewarding opportunities afforded by the middle market. This vibrant market segment is made up of almost 200,000 private, public, and family-owned companies with annual revenues between $10MM and $1B. Middle market companies thrive in virtually all industries and all areas of the country. Perhaps most important to business students, the U.S. middle market accounts for the largest source of sustainable domestic jobs and one third of the country’s total GDP, making the middle market a highly attractive career destination.

At the National Center for the Middle Market, we help connect business students to the unique career and learning opportunities available via the middle market, driving value for both students and corporations. Through events such as our Middle Market Career Fair and applied learning programs like the Big Ten+ Case Competition and Fisher College of Business student projects, we provide one-of-a-kind opportunities for you to interact with and influence middle market companies capable of sustaining and enriching your future career.

Make the National Center for the Middle Market your go-to source for information, opportunities, resources, and all things middle market. And let us be a partner in your education and future success.
