- Multinational corporations (MNC) or multinational enterprises (MNE) are organizations that own or control production or services facilities in one or more countries other than the home country.  For example, when a corporation is registered in more than one country or has operations in more than one country, it may be attributed as MNC. Usually, it is a large corporation which both produces and sells goods or services in various countries. It can also be referred to as an international corporation or "transnational corporation". They play an important role in globalization. Arguably, the first multinational business organization was the Knights Templar, founded in 1120. After that came the British East India Company in 1600  and then the Dutch East India Company, founded March 20, 1602, which would become the largest company in the world for nearly 200 years.
