Abstract
OFDI (Foreign Direct Investments) of multinational enterprises from emerging markets (EM MNEs) have significantly risen over the past decade. In the paper at hand we analyze the present state of research regarding the motivations of EM MNEs to go abroad, their paths of internationalization and the implications of internationalization on financial performance metrics. We discuss prevailing models and frameworks and point out weaknesses of existing explanations. This paper aims at highlighting research gaps and coming up with implications for future research. We conclude that most of the models, which are developed for MNEs from developed countries, need to be adjusted or even replaced. More recent frameworks for EM MNEs often lack empirical evidence or contradict each other. We conclude that the most urgent need for further research can be identified in the field of internationalization modes.
