Apple secured the top spot for the sixth year in a row in Fortune's Top 50 World's Most Admired Companies list.
The company beat out Google and Amazon, which came in second and third on the international list.
The top ten positions are all held by American companies, with businesses like Coca-Cola, Starbucks and Walt Disney joining the ranks.
Apple was voted number one by 3,800 company directors and executives.
Fortune explains that though Apple had a rough time with its stock price and the failure of its Maps feature, the company was the most profitable in the world last quarter, boasting $13 billion in net income.
The Cupertino Tech giant also took the lead in Fortune's list of World's Most Admired In Innovation.
Google comes in second as most admired because of its workplace environment and the anticipated success of the Android OS overtaking Apple's iOS.
Google Play is expected to beat out the Apple App Store in total number of apps for mobile and tablet, Fortune says, and the company placed first on LinkedIn’s Most In Demand Employers and Fortune‘s Best Companies to Work For lists in 2013.
