Apple Tops Fortune’s Most Admired Companies List

Tech giant Apple has been named the most admired company in the world, followed by Amazon and Starbucks in a list compiled by Fortune magazine, but no Indian firm could make the cut. Others in the top ten include Berkshire Hathaway, Disney, Alphabet, General Electric, Southwest Airlines, Facebook and Microsoft. According to Fortune, some 3,800 executives, analysts, directors and experts voted for these companies. Fortune collaborated with its partner Korn Ferry Hay Group on this survey of corporate reputations. The magazine said it began with a universe of about 1,500 candidates: the 1,000 largest US companies ranked by revenue, along with non-US companies in Fortune’s Global 500 database that have revenues of USD10 billion or more. The list was filtered down to the highestrevenue companies in each industry, a total of 680 in 28 countries. A company’s score must rank in the top half of its industry survey to be listed, Fortune said.
