Ranking Transnational Companies from India

In the past decade there has been a dramatic growth in internationalisation of firms from India. Yet, there has been no systematic effort to rank Indian companies based on their degree of internationalisation. For the first time, a systematic ranking is being attempted in India using a globally accepted, multi-dimensional measure of internationalisation, the Transnationality Index (TNI). The Indian School of Business, (ISB) and Brazil-based business school, Fundação Dom Cabral (FDC), recently released the results of their joint survey on the Ranking of Indian Transnational Companies. Professor Raveendra Chittoor and Arun Patro, a former research associate at the ISB, present highlights of the survey.

Transnational Companies (TNCs) account for over a quarter of the world’s GDP. Since the turn of the century, there has been a dramatic rise in multinationals from emerging economies such as India, Brazil and China, and this has caught the attention of many management scholars and practitioners.
