Abstract Within language-sensitive IB literature, a range of studies examine responses to corporate language policies, especially in relation to English. However, research addressing other languages, and profession-specific influences on responses to language standardization remains scarce. This qualitative paper discusses journalists’ responses to corporate language standardization within the linguascape of the BBC Arabic Service. The findings demonstrate the impact of various interlinked influ...

Abstract Cross-country research finds mixed performance effects of family involvement in management (FIM) but consistently positive performance effects of family involvement in ownership (FIO). We argue that cross-country differences in institutional trust and trust in family can help explain this discrepancy. We reason that trust in family normalizes family managers’ use of firm resources to satisfy family needs. In contrast, institutional trust orientates family managers’ attention toward impr...

Abstract Internationalizing firms export, raise foreign equity, and acquire foreign assets. Based on motivations and processes of emerging market internationalizing firms (EMIFs) and drawing on the organizational learning theory, we propose that EMIFs increase their entrepreneurial orientation through internationalization. We argue that a configuration of learning from exports, cross-listing, and international M&A improves entrepreneurial orientation in EMIFs. Longitudinal (nine-year period) dat...

Abstract Global value chains (GVCs) have revolutionized production processes and many companies no longer produce goods and services entirely in one single country or within their own organizational boundaries. Through offshoring and outsourcing, value chains are sliced up and activities are dispersed to locations and actors where they can be produced or executed most efficiently. The fine slicing of GVCs also implies that innovation activities can be geographically dispersed and separated from ...

Abstract The psychic distance paradox refers to inconclusive findings on whether psychic distance hinders cross-border performance. To examine the paradox in international buyer-seller relationships, we consider sub-dimensions of relationship learning: information sharing, joint sense-making, and knowledge integration. Our findings show firm exploration and asset specificity perform distinctive and complementing roles in addressing psychic distance. Firm exploration mitigates psychic distance ch...

Abstract We examine the careers of expatriates in an inter-governmental organization (IGO) who undertake a mix of hardship and non-hardship assignments. Considering the individual, organizational, and broader environmental domains, and using conservation of resources theory, we examine what contributes to such expatriates’ career satisfaction. Based on survey data, we find that career satisfaction is influenced by views of how their assignments fit their overall career and the procedural justice...

Abstract The examination of political risk, political uncertainty, and political institutions in the international business literature has, not unexpectedly, been shaped by the prevailing issues faced by firms at their time of writing. While these three separate angles together have provided an iteratively more comprehensive view of the politics and business nexus, they are still missing an important component, namely the ability of specific actors to utilize political uncertainty and generate i...

Abstract International Business (IB) phenomena often encompass activities at the nation, industry, firm, and individual levels. Consequently, empirical analyses in IB often consider at least two levels of analysis; failing to do so represents omitted variable bias. In this Perspectives paper, we review and evaluate the use and misuse of multi-level methods in IB, suggesting that IB scholars often fail to employ explicitly multilevel approaches when confronted with multi-level phenomena. We also ...
