Acquiring and transferring knowledge across countries is a key success factor for multinational enterprises. Expatriates, as conduits of knowledge, play a key role in this process. Integrating intelligence and work experience theories, this study investigates the influence of general and cross-cultural specific intelligence and work experience on expatriate knowledge acquisition and ultimately, career development and innovation performance. Results from a survey of more than 600 expatriates working in 100 different countries confirm the important role of both general and cross-cultural specific intelligence and work experience. Implications for theory and practice will be discussed.
