This textbook discusses the most important theories of internationalization, including Product Life-Cycle, Internalization, Location, Eclectic Paradigm, Uppsala, Network, and International New Venture concepts. These models are grounded to a considerable extent in the Transaction Cost Theory and the Resource-Based View as explained and illustrated in the book.
Relevant market entry strategies, such as franchising, contract manufacturing, joint ventures, and others are explained and categorized in light of crucial determinants of international business decision making: hierarchical control of operations, the firm’s proximity to the foreign market, the investment risk, and the factor of time.
What makes this textbook novel and unique?
Market Entry Strategies serves as a vital source for internationally oriented bachelor, master, and MBA programs with strategy, marketing, and management lecture modules. Consequently, this publication is highly recommended for students and scholars; but it is also useful for business practitioners seeking to gain competitive advantages in international business.
