Abstract [en]

The purpose of this research is to reach an understanding about the internationalisation process of companies and to what extent companies standardise or adapt their products and/or services when they start operating in foreign markets. The two possible strategies adaptation and standardisation of the marketing mix are analysed by dividing them into the separate marketing mix elements product, price, place and promotion. The aim is to discover the reasons why companies use standardisation or adaptation and to what extent they are using both strategies.
