Abstract

Since the end of the 1980s, English business schools have been expanding overseas and by the mid2000s had become one of the UK’s top 50 exporters (Economist, 2004). Some of these schools have been more successful in their international expansion practices suggesting that they may have better internationalisation capabilities. What are these capabilities and how do business schools benefit from them? These are the important questions for the top management teams of business schools and universities; yet, they have not been well explained in the strategy research. This paper aims at addressing this deficiency in prior research and makes a step towards developing theoretical foundations of internationalisation capabilities of business schools in the English context. We argue that these are dynamic capabilities.
