In this paper, the authors have proposed a conceptual framework to investigate the internationalization of Emerging Market Multi-National Enterprises (EM MNEs). This paper discussed that EM MNEs would pursue exploratory and exploitative expansions simultaneously in an effort to achieve the development of competitive advantages. It also examined the role of various factors (internal R&D efforts, external networks and institutional advocacy) in EM MNEs' strategic choice. It finally highlighted major issues meriting further investigation. Over the last few years, the rise of the EM MNEs on the global stage is changing the landscape of international business.
