Maksim Belitski of Henley Business School is giving a seminar presentation during the International Business and Strategy lunchtime seminar series on 6th October, at 13.00-14.30 in room 108, Henley Business School. If you would like to join the seminar online please contact department administrator Jana Oslejova.


The purpose of this paper is twofold. First, to apply the theoretical framework and empirical modeling of drivers of multinational enterprises (MNEs) scaling-up process. Second, to analyze how the region’s foreign knowledge sources affect the propensity and modes of scaling -up between domestic and foreign MNEs and the role of MNE ownership in this relationship. We use panel data for 44,256 UK-based foreign and 21,246 domestic MNEs during 2004-2017 to provide new evidence on how explicit and implicit foreign knowledge affects scaling-up in sales, market share and productivity. Implications for policymakers and managers of domestic and foreign MNEs are developed.
