Die vorliegende Arbeit versucht aufzuzeigen, inwieweit eine Auswahl theoretischer Erklärungsansätze in Bezug auf die Internationalisierung von KMU angewendet werden kann. Um diese Ansätze näher beleuchten und analysier zu können, werden zunächst zwei die Besonderheiten von KMU sowie gewisse Schwierigkeiten aufgezeigt. Danach erfolgt eine detailliertere Beschreibung der Modelle bzw. Theorien von Aharoni, Johanson/Vahlne, Dunning und Fayerweather. Weiterhin soll überprüft werden, ob und inwieweit diese Theorien auf KMU übertragen werden können. Im Anschluss folgt ein Überblick über die Internationalisierung von KMU und schließlich eine kritische Gesamtbeurteilung und Schlussbetrachtung.
