This paper builds on preceding papers. It distinguishes three domains of international business theory: the boundaries of the multinational enterprise, the external environment of the enterprise and its internal structure. The central concern of internalisation theory is the boundaries of the firm. Any general theory of international business must also analyse the external environment and internal structure. Competition dominates the external environment while co-operation dominates internal str...

Abstract We contribute to extant research that has largely focused on foreign direct investment by examining how an under-studied type of financial inflow (remittances) influences the economic development of recipient Emerging Market Countries (EMCs). We do so by explaining how variations in the cultural context of recipient EMCs influence the value-generating effects of remittances. Our study helps us understand why certain nations can use remittances to improve their economic development (wher...

International Business (IB) is an inherently complex subject because of its global context, the importance of innovation, and the range of ownership and location factors that need to be examined. Here it is argued that IB theory can learn from economics, but that it should not emulate economics too closely because economics makes restrictive assumptions that assume away important issues in IB. We argue that better IB theory can be created by extending existing theories rather than by starting ag...
Purpose The purpose of this paper is to examine the provenance, projection, performance and policy concerning Chinese outward foreign direct investment (COFDI) and speculate on the existence of “China’s international strategy”. Design/methodology/approach This study includes a comprehensive review of COFDI. Findings There is evidence of not only the successful coordination of COFDI, but also context, conflict and independent decision making (in Chinese firms) playing an essential role in the det...

This paper seeks to derive rational policies towards multinational enterprises (MNEs) from extant international business theory. It examines the impact of national institutions and policies on both inward and outward direct foreign investment. It adopts a theory-based perspective utilising internalisation, transaction cost and institutional approaches to the operations of MNEs. It contrasts the received policy process by which MNEs react to policy initiatives with a potential “direct” policy mod...

Abstract We examine language standardization in a multinational enterprise in the context of international knowledge transfer treated as an act of communication. Based on psychological theories of emotions and a qualitative study of a Chinese owned company with English as a working language, we find that both native and non-native English-speakers experience anxiety in intercultural communication. This triggers emotions that are culturally predisposed affecting communication behavior. We provide...

Research Summary Multinational enterprises create and capture value through appropriate business models that fit both distinctive capabilities and dynamic markets. The key elements of a global business model include propositions for adding customer value and capturing a share of that value, methods to control, deploy, and utilize critical resources, and integrated processes that deliver value to target global customers. These factors explain the diversity in business models, with international c...
I examine the ways in which theory can improve strategy education and learning. It does so by examining one key question: how and why, and across which dimensions do firms differ? Pedagogical appro...
The rise of multinational enterprises from emerging countries (EMNEs) poses an important test for theories of the multinational enterprise such as internalisation theory. It has been contended that new phenomena need new theory. This paper proposes that internalisation theory is appropriate to analyse EMNEs. This paper examines four approaches to EMNEs—international investment strategies, domestic market imperfections, international corporate networks and domestic institutions—and three case stu...
