Ulf Holm is the Chair Professor of International Business at the Department of Business Studies, Uppsala University. His research is published in several top journals in International Business as well as in general journals within management, strategy and organization. His research spans across management of the multinational corporation and the internationalization process of the firm, with a focus on innovation, knowledge development and transfer, subsidiary power and foreign market entry.
