Presentation

My main research interest is related to firm strategy, organization and management in emerging markets and developing countries. A key theme is how conventional business theories and research methodologies need to be modified when we analyze firms in emerging markets and developing countries. Theoretically, I work with various IB theories and perspectives, including transaction cost economics, resource and capability perspectives, and spillover and linkage theories.  I have done extensive empirical research on Danish MNCs in developing countries and emerging markets, on outward FDI from developing countries (in particular from India), and on private sector development.

Primary research areas

International business
Firm strategy, organization and managemnt in emerging markets
Private sector development
Spillover and linkage effects
Foreign direct investment in and from developing countries
