Mikael Eriksson is active within the International Business Sector and has been a PhD student since 2008. His work includes studies in a Swedish-founded industrial multinational and its expansion with new business to China and Europe. Data collection mainly involves the conducting of interviews at both HQ and local level. His research aims at describing how the MNC may facilitate, but also hinder an international business establishment by describing how groups within and outside the powerful and complex MNC are working together and/or against each other to form the establishments of new business in new international markets.
Mikael has previous been working within different consultancy firms in Sweden and Italy.

The MNC and its process behind the establishment with new business in new international markets. The Case I am working on involves industrial transfer for a Swedish multinational and the business establishment in China. Many companies are standing before the strategically important, but difficult, decisions about how much to give the local unit in terms of autonomy, resources and whether they should transfer the design and development to the new market or not. My case of the internationalization process of the MNC illustrates how a business opportunity in a new market segment for a particular product may change the divisional strategic direction, business model and even corporate, divisional values. His research aims at describing how groups within and outside the powerful and complex MNC are working together and/or against each other to form the establishments of new business in new international markets.
