Abstract

The study investigated how multinational companies' attributes were used to achieve corporate objectives and how imbibing these attributes could transform Nigerian indigenous companies into multinational status. The study was developed around the stages of MNCs development theories. Theoretical models were used in developing two different hypotheses that were investigated through survey of forty multinational companies which were randomly selected. Copies of well structured questionnaire were administered to the companies sampled in Lagos only. Validity and reliability of the instmment were measured at Cronbach's alpha of 0.69 and alternative form validity of 0.62. The hypotheses were tested at 0.05 significant level. The findings revealed that multinational companies achieved corporate goals set in foreign countries as a result of the attributes exhibited. The recommendation from the study is that Nigerian indigenous companies should adopt attributes that will enable them transform into multinationals to support economic emancipation ofNigerian businesses.
