Panelists:

Drawing from leading strategy and international business scholars from leading Brazilian business schools, this panel outlines the scale and scope of the global expansion strategies of emerging multinationals from Brazil. Providing an overview, Alvaro Cyrino will cover the past, present, and challenges ahead for such multinationals. Dealing with markets that are entered, Dirk Michael Boehe will focus on the initial stages of these firms’ internationalization—export strategies. From an institution-based view, Antonio Gelis will discuss the role played by the Brazilian Development Bank (BNDES) behind many Brazilian multinationals’ international expansion. Using a case study approach, Fernando Luzio will discuss a recent high-profile ($3.26 billion) acquisition of the US-based Burger King by 3G Capital, a New York-based private equity firm backed by three Brazilian investors. Michael Peng will compare and contrast the findings from Brazilian multinationals with his own findings from Chinese multinationals. Finally, Alvaro Cuervo-Cazurra will compare and contrast the findings from Brazilian multinationals with his own findings on multilatinas from other countries, culminating with some thoughts on a future research agenda focusing on emerging multinationals
