Examination of various aspects of how and why firms internationalise.
As a complement to MANT 454, this paper focuses on internationalisation strategies (and their implications) for businesses and other organisations. Taking a microfoundational perspective and considering the nature of competition, this paper explores models of internationalisation, from traditional to born global, examining contexts, resources, decision-makers and consequences of various choices. Considerations include both basic strategic factors and current topical issues, such as entry mode, SMEs, country of origin, and global talent management.
