Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The problems involved in starting and operating a new venture are compounded when one crosses national borders – the fate of the international entrepreneur. Yet, never before in the history of the world has there been such a variety of exciting international business opportunities. With so many potential markets and countries available, this special issue of Administrative Sciences focuses on three critical issues for the global entrepreneur: foreign market selection, global opportunity recognition and selection, and global entry strategy.
