Yale School of Management

Yale SOM Working Paper No. OB-06, PM-05, OL-19
The core focus on multinational corporations is changing. Originally it focused on power relations between it and the nation state. For the past decade this focus has shifted to the efficiency of the multinational enterprise. Today it is shifting again, back to power relationships. Four key areas define research on the multinational firm: its relationship to globalization; the multinational firm as a learning engine; the rise of non-western multinationals; and the growing importance of political analysis and risk assessment as a core competence within the multinational corporation itself.
