The growth of outward foreign direct investment from emerging markets has led to increased scholarly attention on the internationalization of emerging market firms (EMFs). We break from the recent strategic approach on internationalizing EMFs to develop a problematization approach, which permits us to introduce a geographic relational perspective. We use this perspective to highlight process thinking, complex social realities, and relational practice as means by which to better develop theory on...

There is little question that the International Business community, alongside its social science counterparts, is facing a challenge to contemporary practices in the design and reporting of empirical research. Aguinis, Cascio, and Rarnani (Journal of International Business Studies 48: 653–663, 2017) build on this debate to identify five aspects of the research process that can be improved to reduce the severity of the so-called reproducibility and replicability crisis. Without disagreeing with t...

This paper examines the relationship between board structure and risk taking behavior of emerging market firms by looking at firms’ growth strategies in foreign as well as domestic markets. More specifically, we study the individual and joint effects of board structure, network centrality through board interlocks and ownership structure on firm’s growth strategies. With the help of longitudinal data on 2152 publicly listed Indian firms from 2002 to 2009, we find that boards that are structured k...

Prior research has considered various conceptualizations of internationalization and offered diverse perspectives on its performance implications that, in turn, have generated mixed empirical findings. We advance research on the performance implications of internationalization by uncovering the multifaceted nature of internationalization and developing a generalizable theoretical framework that unbundles internationalization into three main facets: international intensity, international diversit...

How do host country institutions influence the value of a firm's local resources? Using a novel dataset on the performance of 47 private equity (PE) firms in 49 emerging economies, we show evidence that the answer depends on the type of institution. Focusing on conditions at the time of initial investment, we find that PE firms with local origins and foreign PE firms with local experience performed better when contract enforcement institutions were weak than when they were strong. Financial deve...

We examine the conditions that can facilitate or hinder the effectiveness with which a new entrant learns from the failures of prior entrants by analyzing the experiences of 822 Japanese subsidiaries in China founded between 1979 and 2000. Our conceptual arguments and empirical findings demonstrate that learning from the failure experiences of prior entrants increases a new entrant's survival chances when entering China. Further, we find that the value of this learning is less effective when the...

We examine the role of ownership structure on international diversification during institutional transition. We also examine how domestic and foreign ownership, as well as business group affiliation, moderate the performance consequences of international diversification. Our theoretical framework integrates agency and institutional perspectives with internationalization research. We argue that the ownership concentration, along with the identity of owners, will influence firm internationalizatio...

Extant theories agree that debt should inhibit diversification but predict opposing performance consequences. While agency theory predicts that debt should lead to higher performance for diversifying firms, transaction cost economics (TCE) predicts that more debt will lead to lower performance for firms expanding into new markets. Our empirical tests on a large sample of Japanese firms support TCE by showing that firms accrue higher returns from leveraging their resources and capabilities into n...
