research overview

  • I do research on the internationalization patterns of multinational retail enterprises. I am particularly interested in their frequent and costly market exits. In contrast to manufacturing companies that have conquered overseas markets with a rapid expansion, multinational retail enterprises have had difficulty in expanding their global footprint. Even the largest multinational retail enterprises with substantial international sales often miscalculate their survival prospects in foreign markets. I seek to understand why many multinational retail enterprises miscalculate their survival prospects in some of their host countries despite stellar successes elsewhere.
