Jane’s research centers on the intersection between organization theory and strategy with a focus on international strategy and non-market strategy. Her earlier research investigates broad level issues that underlie the international strategy of a firm, as well as specific strategic questions, such as how to make a successful foreign entry into a country, or how to manage successfully in a foreign country. Her recent research continues this line of research but with a focus on emerging market firms and their non-market strategies.
