    Abstract

    Organizational socialization is the learning process of its specific culture and value. Foreign subsidiary socialization has been considered as a useful approach in transferring home basefs knowledge. But it has the potential risk that socialized foreign subsidiaries are not able to adjust to the business environment in their countries, because home basefs culture is basically suitable not for foreign country environment but for home one. From 7 Japanese MNCfs subsidiary in emerging country, we describe the actual situation of socialization effects, and we theorize that phenomenon as a socialization dilemma in MNCfs foreign subsidiary.
