The more globalized corporate organizations are, the more important it is for management practitioners and researchers to understand these multinational enterprises, or MNEs in terms of organizational culture as well as other aspects of organization and management. The MNE represents a cross-cultural setting where its organizational culture stemming from its home country national culture encounters its host country national culture. Its headquarters organization attempts to transfer organizational culture to its overseas subsidiaries and to standardize organizational culture across these subsidiaries in the effort to achieve cultural control and competitiveness abroad as well as at home. Meanwhile, MNEs need to resemble organizational culture to the regional culture so that they can be relevant and avoid the liability of foreignness in the different institutional context. In this research, I will examine the organizational culture of MNEs in terms of its structure (what is organizational culture?) and process (How is it changed?). Then, I will present issues to be explored in regard to the organizational culture of MNEs.
