The degree of firm-level multi-nationality is a key dimension that spans all theoretical frameworks, levels of empirical analysis and domains of investigation in international business research. There is, however, no agreed approach to defining or measuring firm-level multi-nationality. This is reflected in inconsistent approaches to sample selection and empirical testing, and it has curtailed the advancement of the discipline. We propose that instead of searching for the elusive, all-encompassing definition of an MNC, international business scholars should instead agree on a classification system for the degree of firm-level multi-nationality. We illustrate the advantages of this approach by constructing a simple classification system that takes into account the firm's breadth and depth of multinational engagements. We illustrate our matrix of firm multi-nationality by classifying a novel sample of over 1000 firms from seven countries, and we demonstrate how it can guide theory development and empirical testing. We also provide examples of potential future research directions.


Descriptive statistics Analysis

The use of descriptive statistics is very common in basic business analysis because it provides the easiest understanding of the data and a common man can also understand that what is going on in the data. In this study, we have used the descriptive statistics as an important tool to analyze the affect of the variables that we are using in our analysis. This small analysis will create a background for the study which will certainly guide us till the end where we prove our hypothesis by using advance statistics.

The mean age of the CEOs in the company in all the 3 years were found to be almost 56 years with a standard deviation of almost 6.5 years showing that there is not much variation in the ages of the CEOs. Though the rage is comparatively high i.e. almost 46 years which shows little deviations in the data and the presence of outliers but this outliers and high will provide reliable results. The mean total compensation given to the CEOs of the company is 1.08E4 which includes all the benefits available to them but the standard deviation shows that the variation in the total compensation is very high i.e. different multinational companies have different range of compensations given to the CEOs depending on the profitability condition of the MNCs. Another important factor that remains important is that ROA and ROE has a certain dependency on the MNCs performance because it measure the profitability of the company highly depends on it. The mean returns on equity for the ...
