The authors of this article describe a study identifying factors associated with small firm international strategy choice and evaluating differences between the performance of firms with an international strategy versus those without. The international strategy of small firms is significantly related to a higher return on sales but negatively related to growth. The study does not show a direct relationship between the international strategy and internal administrative changes.
