Abstract—The objective of this study is to expand on the existing theories on internationalisation and to address the theoretical gap in existing literature regarding the lack of evidence showing that there is a clear difference in the preference for explorative OFDI in developing market MNEs when compared to developed market MNEs. The results of the study show that the assumption that developing market MNEs tend to invest more in knowledge-intensive OFDI than those from developed markets is correct as the lack of product and service differentiation capabilities provides motivation to seek knowledge in operations and marketing in foreign countries. The study examines a cross section of large and small developed and developing economies, including OECD countries, BRICS and smaller economies in Southeast Asia and Latin America.
Index Terms—cross-sectional data, emerging economies, innovative capabilities, knowledge-based capital, OFDI
