A key introduction provides a comprehensive overview of the major issues and different approaches to international management research. This book offers a typology of research designs in international management and shows the role of culture plays in such designs. Also discussed are the theories and paradigms that serve international and cross-cultural management research. Throughout, the author provides numerous illustrative examples from key empirical studies. International and Cross-Cultural Management Research provides an accessible introduction to the major principles and practices. It will be an indispensable guide for students and others wishing to undertake research in business and management with an international and/or cross-cultural dimension.
