Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
This thesis comprehends a notable research gap through its exploration of risk and
opportunity perception for Swedish firms’ internationalizing to Cuba, by conducting a
multiple-case study of three Swedish firms’.
A qualitative research method has been used in accordance with an abductive approach.
The conceptual framework illustrates the correlation between the theories, which has
been applied to the empirical findings. Conclusions derived throughout the analysis and
the significant theoretical implications demonstrate answers to the dominance of
arbitrage opportunities. Empirical implications illustrate why risks and opportunities
might be acknowledged differently due to industry, whereas managerial implications
emphasize the importance for Swedish firms’ to understand the complexity
impregnating the business environment.
