Scholars have long been raising the question of why multinational corporations (MNCs) invest across borders and how they maximise earnings in unfamiliar markets. In the ongoing search for solutions, scholars realise in particular that they need to grapple with appropriate MNC strategies. IJMCS provides a forum for in-depth exploration of this research area. In addition to papers in this field, IJMCS also welcomes studies focusing on local firms battling against MNCs and how the insights can inform local firms' strategies.
Topics covered include
- Multinational corporation strategy and governance
- Global business strategy
- New international business models
- International dimensions of local firm strategy
- Multinational corporations based on emerging and developing markets
- Corporate strategies in global environments
- Multinational innovation strategy
- The strategy and organisational structure of multinational corporations
- Global trade and investment environment
- Foreign market entry strategies for multinational corporations
- Corporate social responsibility
- Knowledge management strategy
- Research methods for multinational corporation strategy
- Theories on multinational corporations and foreign direct investment
The objectives of IJMCS are to discuss any and all aspects of multinational corporation strategies, such as innovation, corporate social responsibility, knowledge management, market entry strategies, foreign business environments and corporate governance, etc. By doing this, this journal will function as an effective conduit helping to communicate crucial strategic knowledge between MNC managers, policy makers, academic institutions, educators and scholars studying international business and strategy in the global context.
IJMCS provides a vehicle to help professionals, academics, researchers and policy makers working in the domain of multinational corporation strategy to deliver, influence and develop key knowledge on international business.
This journal publishes original papers, either qualitative or quantitative, which provide managerial and practical implications based on rigorous empirical evidence. In addition, it seeks research papers applying, extending and building theory and/or theoretical concepts that can impact the general discipline of international business. The editor also welcomes literature reviews, case studies and book reviews. Special Issues focusing on important topics in multinational corporation strategy will also be published from time to time.
