Using secondary data of internationalized Spanish hotel chains, this research attempts to examine the role of formal and informal institutional differences between home and host country from the foreign location choice point of view. Generally speaking, the results show that (a) the higher the formal institutional differences the lower the attractiveness of the foreign location, (b) the negative effect of linguistic differences, as an informal institutional dimension, significantly affects the c...

The Kogut and Singh (J Int Bus Stud 19(3):411–432, 1988) index is the most widely used construct to measure cultural distance in international business and management research. We show that this index is incorrectly specified and captures the squared cultural distance. This inaccuracy is problematic because it means that the empirical findings on the effects of cultural distance presented in different strands of international business research are likely to be misleading. We specify the correct ...

Despite much research on ‘distance’, little attention has been paid to the effect of divergence of managers’ perceptions of distance from reality (i.e. distance divergence) and its implications for firm performance. This knowledge is highly important since managerial perceptions of the firm’s environment do not always coincide with the actual environmental characteristics. Consequently, strategies based on inaccurate data may result in erroneous forecasts, missed opportunities and business failu...

Religious observance remains widespread and thus potentially influential in managerial decision-making, yet its impact on market entry decisions is largely unexplored. This study investigates the effect of managerial religiosity on the three key entry decisions of where, when, and how to internationalise. Based on the verbal protocols of fourteen Malaysian Muslim executives who are considering international expansion, we find that higher levels of religiosity neither led to preferences for other...

External knowledge search strategies are considered essential for increasing export performance, a crucial goal for small and medium enterprises (SMEs) in a globalised and turbulent environment. SMEs are known to have limited resources, which leads them to choose the export strategy as the best alternative for entering foreign markets. The present study analyses the link between industrial and non-industrial knowledge search strategies and export performance, taking into account absorptive capac...

The primary studies on emerging market multinational firms (EMFs) thus far have depicted a picture of accelerated internationalization in which EMFs conduct a series of aggressive cross-border acquisitions to further enhance their competitive advantage. However, it is not clear whether the EMFs which conducted the acquisitions at a young age experience better performance. EMFs constrained by their home market development in economic institutions may encounter different challenges in their cross-...

States burdened with conflict have been considered to be undesirable destinations for foreign direct investment (FDI) due to, inter alia, political instability, regulatory unpredictability, and expropriation risk. However, we develop an alternative view based on corporate governance and real option theories. We analyze a dataset of FDI location decisions made in the Oil and Gas sector by 250 US firms across 44 countries between 2007 and 2013. After controlling for energy reserves, the results sh...

Legitimacy has been identified as an important factor influencing the survival of international joint ventures (IJVs). Yet empirical studies exploring IJV strategies for gaining post-formation legitimacy are scarce. This study examines how IJVs accumulate legitimacy after their formation in China. We identify two non-market strategies, namely corporate social responsibility (CSR) and political ties, and compare their effects on gaining two types of legitimacy: political legitimacy and market leg...

Among studies on performance outcomes of entry mode choices disagreement fueled by ambiguous research findings is apparent as regards whether the best performers are those firms that enter foreign countries with high or low entry mode degree of control. To solve this dilemma and test new hypotheses, the relationship between entry mode degree of control and firm performance is examined by meta-analyzing 133 studies (740,114 observations) covering entry mode choices from 1980 to 2010. We find that...
