Abstract
The following paper addresses an issue that has been gaining importance in today’s world: Multilatinas. Those are companies that have emerged from Latin American developing economies and that during the last decades have been growing really fast in the national and the international field. Through this paper we studied the importance of Multilatinas in the region, their common characteristics and their internationalization processes in order to identify if there is a common pattern in their international moves. Actually, the economic openness of Latin America in the 90s left two options for enterprises: to modernize or to disappear. Therefore, Multilatinas represent the survivors from this phenomenon that flourished in adverse conditions through a process of “learning-by-doing”. Modelos de internacionalizacion de las multilatinas El presente trabajo aborda un tema que ha ido ganando importancia en el mundo actual: las Multilatinas. Estas empresas han surgido de las economias en desarrollo de America Latina y durante las ultimas decadas han crecido exponencialmente tanto en el ambito nacional como internacional.A traves de este trabajo se estudia la importancia de las Multilatinas en la region, sus caracteristicas comunes y sus procesos de internacionalizacion con el fin de identificar si existe un patron comun en sus movimientos internacionales. De hecho, la apertura economica que vivio America Latina en los anos 90 dejo dos opciones para las empresas: modernizarse o desaparecer. Por lo tanto, las Multilatinas son las sobrevivientes de este fenomeno que se desarrollo en condiciones adversas a traves de un proceso de “Aprender-haciendo”.

The entry to global markets, expansion and proliferation of the “new” multinational enterprises (MNs) originating in emerging economies, such as the case of Brazil, China, India and Mexico, during the last two decades, have surprised policymakers and analysts. The Boston Consulting Group (2006) identified 6 Mexican MNEs out of top 100 emerging multinationals. The 2009 Boston Consulting Group (BCG) 100 new global challengers are based on 14 rapidly development economies (RDEs), including Mexico. ...

Purpose – It has been argued in the international business literature that companies begin their internationalization trajectories by entering countries that are geographically and psychically closest to the country in which their home market is located before entering more distant ones. This paper aims to verify whether this assertion is correct for Brazilian companies. If it is correct, the companies would be expected to begin their international expansion in countries within the Latin America...

Los resultados indican que mayores grados de internacionalizacion de las ventas se asocian a retornos positivos en terminos de ROA (retorno sobre los activos) y Tobin�s Q (desempeno de mercado).

Based on the analysis of the international expansion of CEMEX, the Mexican construction materials firm, we propose that the sustainable growth of multinationals from emerging markets depends on the continuous renewal of its capabilities platform. In contrast with previous studies, we suggest that the new capabilities come, in many cases, from the periphery of the firm rather than its country of origin. To contribute to the competitive advantage of the firm, these capabilities have to meet three ...

Abstract We explore how a country’s economic openness impacts firm-level signal interpretation when stakeholders assess firm reputation, arguing that host country norms influence the reference frames of assessors. In more open economies, regional MNCs’ international activities are more valued as signals of firm quality–indicating effective cross-border deployment of ownership advantages. Latin America’s unique development trajectory has resulted in groupings of both more open and more restrictiv...

Distance is an important concept for the study of international location decisions, but conflicting empirical results call for the investigation of when distance matters. Based on institutional distance, this conceptual paper proposes that the general preference for less distant countries is lower when: the company is state owned; internationalization motives are asset, resource, or efficiency seeking rather than market seeking; and internationalization occurs after globalization and the advent ...

This paper aims to show that, although there is no evidence of a generalized pattern within the internationalization process of Colombian firms, there are common features in the majority of the observed firms: the election of exportations as the main entrance tool, the entrance to countries within a short geographical and psychological distance, and the development of local strategic advantages that eventually replicate abroad. A poll and a structured interview were used, including numerical and...
