We are living in an increasingly globalized world. While cities provide a place for people to live and work, a global city can generate more benefits by creating an environment that attracts and retains top talent, businesses, ideas, and capital.
A.T.Kearney, a global management consulting firm, has been releasing a Global Cities Index every two years since 2008 and its latest study was released on April 14. The index examines a comprehensive list of 84 cities on every continent, measuring how globally engaged they are across 26 metrics in five dimensions: business activity, human capital, information exchange, cultural experience, and political engagement. The scores are based on a 0 to 10 scale. The higher a city scores, the more global it is.
Let's take a look at the most globalized cities in the world.
