Research output: Book/ReportAnthologyResearchpeer-review


How do firms from emerging economies seek to internationalize their business? This comprehensive two-volume collection tackles this question by taking a closer look at underexplored issues, including bottom of the pyramid (BoP) business models, value creation and co-creation, employee commitment and the ‘born global’ concept. Taking both a geographic and thematic approach to the topic, the first volume addresses universal challenges such as inclusive innovation, the ethics of corporate leadership, and knowledge management, with a special focus on China. Providing an overview of the strategies and operations involved in internationalizing Chinese firms, this book will provide useful reading for those researching emerging markets and globalization, as well as Asian Business more specifically.
