Long description:
Now in its third edition, this core textbook for advanced undergraduate, graduate, and postgraduate students combines analytical rigour and managerial insight on the functioning and strategy of large multinational enterprises (MNEs). Verbeke and Lee develop an original conceptual model that supports student learning by providing an integrated perspective, rooted in theory and practice. The discussion also includes unique commentaries on seventy-four seminal articles published in the&&&160;Harvard Business Review, the&&&160;Sloan Management Review,&&&160;and the&&&160;California Management Review&&&160;over the past four decades, demonstrating how the key insights can be applied to real businesses engaged in international expansion programmes, especially as they venture into high-distance markets. This third edition has been thoroughly updated and features new sections on multinational entrepreneurship, strategic challenges in the new economy, and international business strategy during globally disruptive events, including the COVID-19 pandemic. Students will benefit from updated case studies, improved learning features, and a wide range of online resources.

'This revised edition of Alain Verbeke's textbook builds on the strengths of the very first edition, and continues to stand out from other textbooks in two respects. First, the analytical framework summarizing the nature of international business presented in the first half of the book is consistently used in all subsequent chapters. Second, this conceptual toolkit helps students to understand the complexities of international business in the real world.' Sjoerd Beugelsdijk, Professor of International Business, University of Groningen
