Abstract: International Business scholars have long been interested in understanding MNC innovation management. Most of the research has investigated this issue at the national or corporate headquarter level but not from a micro perspective. This paper develops a model integrating strategic management theories and international business research to test hypotheses concerning the impact of human capital intensity, internal innovation climate and subsidiary nationality of ownership on innovation management behavior at the subsidiary level. The hypotheses are tested using 86 firms from Singapore and Penang, Malaysia. Regression results show that: (1) The nationality of subsidiaries does not affect human capital intensity but has substantial impact on internal innovation climate; (2) Internal innovation climate only partially explain the difference in innovation management behavior while human capital intensity does not; (3) The nationality of subsidiaries plays an important role in explaining the differences in innovation management.
