Multinational companies (MNCs) often invite foreign subsidiary employees or inpatriates to their headquarters (HQ) to internalize the MNCs’ corporate values and transfer those values to their subsidiaries after repatriation. However, there is a lack of understanding about how and why inpatriates internalize these corporate values during their HQ experiences. By integrating the perspectives of international adjustment and organizational socialization with that of on-the-job learning, we develop a...

Although an increasing body of research has focused attention on reshoring, namely, a company’s decision to relocate activities back to the home-country, how and when reshoring impacts market responses remains largely understudied and requires specific theoretical and empirical consideration. Our study complements existing research on reshoring by adopting a demand-side perspective. Through multiple, experimental and survey-based studies, conducted in two countries (Italy and the US), we verifie...

This paper investigates the impact of genealogical language distance in cross-border communication on private participation infrastructure projects. Our analysis of 5440 projects in 64 countries (1990–2004) shows that the probability of success of private participation projects is lower in countries characterized by a larger genealogical language distance. We also find that this effect is weaker when the project involves a local investor or the host country government. In contrast, the same effe...

Despite its importance to business performance, the role of Entrepreneurial Orientation (EO) in multinational corporations (MNCs) is under-researched. This study investigates the drivers of EO and its performance outcome in the context of large MNCs. The authors theorize that an MNC’s organizational characteristics drive the formation of its EO and an MNC’s EO affects its performance in the global market under certain contingency conditions. Based on a survey of large MNCs, the authors find that...

Based on neo-institutional theory and knowledge spillover, we argue that the probability of a firm assigning an expatriate manager to a foreign subsidiary is influenced by a combination of mimicry and knowledge spillover from any existing expatriate community in the foreign location. The expatriate community’s influence is hypothesized to be weaker when the firm’s ownership share in its foreign subsidiary is greater but stronger when the cultural distance between a firm’s home country and the fo...

The legal and economic institutions in emerging economies normally undergo major changes during the transition to a market economy. The development of legal and economic institutions in such economies is discussed, and two different development paths are analyzed. One relates to economies with relatively better-developed economic institutions, and the other to those with relatively better-developed legal institutions. A series of propositions are developed to explain how different imbalances in ...

Despite the growing trend of internationalisation in e-business, academic research in this area is sparse. This study develops and tests a theoretical framework of the drivers of international performance for emerging market e-business firms. Specifically, we focus on the role of institutional capabilities in terms of socio-political networking and business model innovation in shaping emerging market e-business’s international performance. Based on a unique sample of Chinese e-business firms, ou...

This study investigates how home-country political connections affect the internationalization of service firms. There are conflicting arguments in the literature on the effect of political connections on firms’ internationalization with some researchers arguing that political connections have a facilitating effect while others argue that they have a constraining effect. In this paper, we argue that which effect dominates largely depends on the type of firm–because of the importance of being loc...

This study combines the resource-based view of the firms and region-based view of the strategy (i.e., a 2R-based view) to shed light on the crucial roles of firm-specific resources and region-specific heterogeneity within the context of China, a large emerging economy. The study explains the variations in internationalization levels among service multinational enterprises (MNEs). Based on a large sample analysis of Chinese service MNEs, our findings demonstrate that MNEs with good cost efficienc...
