Research on expatriation has indicated that between 20 to 40 percent of expatriate managers do not successfully make the transition and return early (Baker & Ivancevich, 1971; Black, 1988; Tung, 1981). Based on the literature on person-situation fit, a model of expatriate success was developed and tested in this study. The findings of the study indicate that perceived career paths, willingness to relocate and role clarity affect expatriate success. The implications of these findings for organisations are discussed.
