Encyclopedia > Multinational corporations

A multinational corporation (MNC) or transnational corporation (TNC) is one that spans multiple nations; these corporations are often very large. Such companies have offices and/or factories in different countries. They usually have a centralised head office where they coordinate global management.

Multinationals often make use of subcontractors to produce certain goods for them.

The first multinational, appearing in 1602, was the Dutch East India Company.
