Time: 11:15 – 12:30

Invited Panel

Room: Lecture Theatre 6

Session Chair:
Charles Dhanaraj, International Institute for Management Development


This panel will present a comparative study of the internationalization experience of firms from Brazil, Russia, India, and China. It will address questions such as why firms in these countries internationalized, and how their strategies were shaped by home-country factors, firm-specific factors, and host-market conditions. Collectively, the studies will bring into focus the similarities and differences across these countries. In addition, the panel will explore the theoretical implications of emerging-market MNEs, including the question of how well the EMNE phenomenon fits in with mainstream theories of International Business. It will also address the theoretical and methodological issues in advancing research on EMNEs. There will be time for interactive discussion, which will be useful for advancing research in this critical area.
