Multinational corporation (MNC) or called as transnational corporation is an organization focusing on business concern with operations about productions or services in more than one country. It plays an important role in the contemporary global economy, and has developed in power and visibility in recent years over developing countries in particular, and developed countries in general (Eldridge, 2011). Therefore, it is incontrovertible that the advantages from multinational production are huge for MNCs. However, the rise of multinational production brings about both opportunities and threats
The Concept Of Multinational Corporations (MNC’s) The term multinational corporation (MNC) can be defined and described from various perspectives as there is no univocal or universal view of what a multinational corporation is.

Given the specific countries where the MNC does its business, describe the agency problems and constraints that the MNC experiences in seeking to achieve their objectives, and how they attempt to overcome them. Theories that answer why PepsiCo conducts international business: Theory of Comparative Advantage Certain countries specialize in the production of certain goods and services.

Specialization by countries can therefore increase efficiency in both how quickly a product is produced and the use of capital.
Individualistic societies prefer a social framework that is loosely-knit, where individuals are expected to care for and support themselves. Collectivist societies, on the other hand, have a more tightly-knit framework in the society where the groups of citizens care for them in return for loyalty. Although many people believe that individualism is good for societies through promoting economic development directly, collectivism is better because it balances societies
CHAPTER ONE INTRODUCTION: PURPOSE OF THIS THESIS 1.1 Introduction The study of the internationalisation process of emerging market multinationals (EMNCs) has gained prominence in the last two decades as a result of the recent economic growth and transformation witnessed in emerging markets (EM). The internationalisation phenomenon has attracted a great deal of interest from international business (IB) scholars (Athreye & Kapur, 2009; Hoskisson, Eden, Lau, & Wright, 2000; Hoskisson, Wright, Filatotchev, & Peng, 2013; Jormanainen & Koveshnikov, 2012). The outward foreign direct investment (OFDI) from emerging market was $11.9 billion in 1990 and increased to $170 billion on average between 2000-2008. By 2013 investment from emerging markets
Prahalad views modern India has many languages, religions and traditions with diverse cultures. Children begin by coping and learning to accept and assimilate in this diversity.

A Multinational Corporation (MNC) is an organization which has operations in multiple countries around the world, but managed from its home country (Business Directory, 2011). Richard Caves defined MNCs as “…firms which control and organize production using plants from at least two countries” (Caves, 1996). There are many advantages brought by MNCs to their host countries. These positive contributions include increase in investments, upgrading infrastructure, creating jobs and opportunities for locals, increasing GDP and economic growth. There are sometimes disadvantages to host countries, however.
TMC’s automobile operations transformation process could be generalized as from local to global both in terms of manufacture and sales. In the early days of TMC, its marketing strategy was project-by-project with an aim to cover every household in Japan. The However, its strategy began to change when its products first exported to the United States in 1957, TMC then broadened its sales scope to the whole world. For over fifty years, TMC managed to sell its cars to over 170 countries and regions throughout the world. TMC’s strategy also developed from a project-by-project approach to “next-generation demand management” which marks a much more ambitious goal for TMC.
Their alternative is to argue that Indian tradition was inherently tolerant, that it is rather the modernising state, homogenising and interventionist, requiring a monolithic "national culture" to back it up, which has been the root cause of the rise of the various forms of violence and growing alienation of religious groups seen in India today . Mr. Nandy and Mr. Chatterjee differ in various ways, and neither would like to have his position identified with that of the Hindutva ideologues. Yet, since neither says anything concrete about Islamic tolerance, we are left with the position that it is above all Hinduism that is tolerant . The progressives want to say that Hinduism is not Hindutva; the Hindutva people say that
