Abstract
The article provides an overview about the development of international business theory beginning with Hymer’s seminal contribution in 1960 and ending with a contribution by Engwall from 2006 that links institutionalization theory to the multinational firm. Building on these theoretical developments, the article gives new directions for research regarding the internationalization phenomenon of Colombian firms. Furthermore, it is suggested that universities in Colombia that offer international business programs include international business theory in their curriculum to strengthen its epistemological basis and to provide motives for students, especially at the postgraduate level, to research the internationalization behavior of Colombian firms - a phenomenon clearly under-researched in the country and internationally in the context of Latin-America.

The main task of this paper is to discuss ways in which production financed by foreign direct investment, that is, that undertaken by multinational enterprises (MNEs), has affected our thinking about the international allocation of resources and the exchange of goods and services between countries. The analysis takes, as its starting point, the growing convergence between the theories of international trade and production, and argues the case for an integrated approach to international economic ...

AbstractThis article identifies the specific characteristics of Nordic international business research by analyzing how Nordic researchers over time have perceived and conceptualized their research object, “the international firm.” Their perceptions about essential features of the international firm are arguably reflected in their theoretical and empirical work on the internationalization of the firm and the management of the international firm.

For that reason, the company implemented various corporate social responsibility strategies to overcome the difficulties of operating in these areas. These strategies contributed to the consolidation of the company’s operations under a single juridical and administrative entity,...
