This is, in part, due to the lack of indicators to measure the performance of internationalization at the institutional level (Gao, 2014) as well as the multidisciplinarity inherent in the concept.
In general, internationalization is associated with different activities conducted by universities both inside and outside of campuses (Ewert, 2012; Gao, 2014; Stafford & Taylor, 2016), such as: establishing international agreements/covenants, promoting international academic mobility, and conducting collaborative international activities (Knight, 2015).
We suggest that rapid internationalization will have a positive effect on firm performance by increasing the scope of first-mover advantages and the speed with which firms exploit and acquire valuable assets.
Second, even if firms are unable to obtain a first-mover advantage in a particular market, rapid internationalization allows firms to quickly acquire and develop their strategic resources (for example, the outlets of a local retailer), which allow them to quickly improve their position vis-a-vis their competition (see, for example, Bonaglia et al.
The role played by internationalization among Spanish SMEs
During the previous section, we've seen how internationalization can become a source of benefits for SMEs.
In the home internationalization practices, the enthusiasm of students communicating with foreigners or participating in the international activities is low, the percentages of "Never" and "Seldom" add up to over 60%, while the total percentage of "Often" and "Usually" is only around 16%--17% as shown in figure 2.
4-Regression analysis of internationalization and cross-cultural competence
In this paper we aim to fill the gaps identified in extant literature by investigating the evolution of internal and external export barriers over the internationalization
Moreover, firm internationalization
has been relatively young in both India and China (Athreye & Kapur, 2009).
Students can benefit from this mode of internationalization
to transfer their credit hours in other universities.
There is a dearth of studies conducted on the internationalization
processes in the country.
