Abstract

The engagement of multinational corporations from different nationalities in corrupt operations in every corner of the world has more recently driven an extensive scholarly interest for the antecedents and outcomes of corruption. Indeed, exploring corruption around and between organizations, has significantly advanced the field of international business, but yet, there are still important issues underdeveloped. How multinational corporations engage in corruption, how this is internally developed, sustained and then spread across its various units at home and even abroad is still an uncharted research field. Our paper addresses this gap drawing upon a case study of the EMNE Odebrecht – one of the largest construction companies in Latin America. We bring together conventional theories of international business, and the institutionalization perspective to understand what enabled the company to institutionalize and reproduce corrupt practices not only with the country of origin but also around subsidiaries around the world.
