Abstract :

This paper evaluates the relative managerial efficiencies of fourteen matched-pair American (U.S.) and Indian firms. In this study, the notion of managerial efficiency is defined in terms of profitability, debt management, and asset management. Paired comparison is employed and eight hypotheses are tested on the basis of defined ratios. Because matched pairs are used, an appropriate test is the Wilcoxon matched-pairs signed-ranked test. All the data for the study were compiled by the author from Mergent on Line. These include the most recent fiveyear time-series data that were available in 2011 for all the eight ratios that were tested. The analysis presented in this paper indicates the absence of any statically significant differences between the two sets of firms with regard to all of the ratios examined, suggesting that the U.S and the IN firms are similar to each other with respect to their managerial efficiencies of their operations.
