More Information
Guided by the overarching question “how and why does the emerging economy context matter for business?”, this collection brings together key contributions of Klaus Meyer on multinational enterprises (MNEs) competing in, and originating from, emerging economies.

From theoretical to process perspectives, the book also explores how outward investment strategies contribute to building internationally competitive MNEs. It looks at the process by which foreign MNEs pursue distinct opportunities in each emerging economy by adapting their strategies to the specific business ecosystem. This includes, inter alia, the location of production, choice of entry mode, forms of equity and non-equity partnerships and market positioning. Conversely, when local firms set their ambitions beyond national boundaries, their own resources and capabilities are shaped by the business ecosystem of their home country.

The author’s theoretically grounded empirical research in Multinational Enterprises and Emerging Economies gives MSc students, PhD students and junior scholars the opportunity to dig deeper into the study of MNE growth.

Critical Acclaim
‘The advance of post-war globalisation since China’s Open Door Policy of 1978 and the Fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989 has transformed international business. It has stimulated both inward and outward investment flows in emerging economics in Eastern Europe, Asia, Latin America and Africa. Klaus Meyer is a leading researcher into these economies. This book epitomises his systematic and insightful investigations into the role of these emerging economies in the new world order.’
– Mark Casson, University of Reading and Henley Business School, UK

‘Professor Klaus Meyer has brought together an exceptional collection of high-quality papers on emerging economy markets and firms, all published in leading academic journals. This volume will be a must-read in the years to come for any scholar interested in advancing international business research on emerging economies. The broad scope and intellectual depth of this collection confirm the status of Professor Meyer as the world's leading authority on the subject matter of emerging markets and emerging economy multinational enterprises.’
– Alain Verbeke, Editor-in-Chief, Journal of International Business Studies (JIBS)

‘This is a highly essential and extensive book tackling one of the key topics in contemporary international business – multinational enterprises investing in and from major emerging markets. Professor Meyer is to be congratulated on his long and remarkable achievements on international business in emerging economies, some of which are included in this very valuable book. Particularly insightful and significant are his rich theoretical discussions on strategic choice and growth of global firms entering emerging markets and emerging market firms go global.’
– Yadong Luo, University of Miami, US
