Internationalisation of Indian firms has received sparse attention in the extant literature. This proposal paper seeks to address the gap by offering a research agenda focusing on five key aspects that are of imminent importance with regards to the internationalisation of Indian firms. The five key propositions deal with: (a) Indian firms’ approaches to internationalisation; (b) the mimetic behaviour of these firms in comparison to the internationalisation of firms from other emerging economies; (c) competitive resource management; (d) institutional isomorphism manifest in the assimilating organisational practices and structures; and (e) the impact of environment and organisational pressures. We believe that these propositions will assist researchers in uncovering insights regarding the internationalisation of Indian firms and the emergent implications for business practice.
