CIBER Focus: "Issues in the Emerging and Fast-growing Economies" with Roberto Curci
Roberto Curci discusses his research on the internationalization patterns of companies in Hong Kong and China during an interview with Kelley MBA student Jimmy Bettcher. Curci, Associate Professor of Finance at Butler University's College of Business, describes the value chain internationalization framework, a research tool that captures the extent to which companies engage in international business through both upstream and downstream production processes. His research findings indicate a strong momentum in China to explore international markets and he explains that Chinese firms are well-positioned to compete in these markets because of their experiences with China's highly competitive domestic markets. Emphasizing the importance of a global mindset, Curci also offers advice to Indiana firms and encourages managers to consider international markets as a strategic way to create value. *This video was recorded as a part of the Indiana University CIBER Focus Vodcast Series.
