Within the new world scheme and according to the challenges that a world each more globalized demands, it is imperative for companies to be prepared to initiate the internationalization process and to respond not only to the needs of a natural market as the local one, but also to those of the international market.

A specific analysis was made to define the internationalization process which rules the Latin American enterprises specially the Colombian case.
