The MNCs in the World

When we want to see who the multinational giants in the world are, two useful studies might help us. One of them is The Fortune Global 500 and the other one is The Forbes 500. The Fortune Global 500 is a ranking of the top 500 corporations worldwide as measured by revenue. The list is compiled and published annually by Fortune magazine. Until 1989 it listed only non-US industrial corporations under the title “International 500”, while the Fortune 500 contained and still contains exclusively US corporations. In 1990, US companies were added to compile a truly global list of top industrial corporations as ranked by sales.

There is another useful measure called The Forbes Global 2000 is an annual ranking of the top 2000 public companies in the world by Forbes magazine. The ranking is based on a mix of four metrics: Sales, Profit, Assets and Market value. The list has been published since 2003. The Forbes Global 2000 is a useful indicator of which are the leading public companies in the world but it is only an interpretation, as only public companies are listed. The results are not definitive; any change to the criteria would produce a different list.
