    Description

    This paper critically reviews the ownership, location, and internalization (OLI) model, and the Uppsala internationalization process (UIP) framework. Both the OLI model and the UIP model ignore to incorporate the insights of each other and fail to include corporate entrepreneurship in their analyses. We argue that regulatory
    focus theory can unify the managerial choice of internationalization between internalization and networking. In addition, host country institutions affect this managerial choice with regard to internationalization. Thus, we suggest that the inclusion of concepts such as corporate entrepreneurship, institutional environment, and regulatory focus in an integrated framework helps to explain firm internationalization.
