Little is known about the entrepreneurship intentions of employees who have been on long-term international assignments, particularly after they leave paid employment upon their return from abroad. The paper investigates empirically whether these employees have a higher propensity to start a business than employees who have no corresponding experience abroad. At the same time, it examines the question of which factors speak in favour of self-employment for repatriates.
