Abstract: In the globalised market, the priority of companies pursuing international achievements is how to identify segments that are favourable foreign products. Consumer cosmopolitanism represents a promising group for implementing successfully cross-cultural strategies. Scholars also agree that the formation process of consumer cosmopolitanism varies from country to country. This study provides a review and replication of the reliability and validity of available measurement scales for consumer cosmopolitanism in Vietnam. The findings highlight a necessity for a new measurement scale of consumer cosmopolitanism applying in the Vietnamese young market and provide a theoretical distinction among related constructs: cosmopolitanism, cosmopolitan, and consumer cosmopolitanism. Theoretical contributions and future recommendations have been suggested in this study.

Keywords: consumer cosmopolitanism; cosmopolitanism; cosmopolitan; product's attitude; product's evaluation; product's purchase intention.
