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. Building on a foundation in trade theory and the nature of competition, this paper explores models of internationalisation pathways, from traditional to born global, examining contexts, resources, and consequences of various choices. Considerations include both basic strategic factors and currently topical issues, such as entry mode, risk, outsourcing and offshoring, country of origin, and technological shifts such as automation and artificial intelligence.
