Existen pocos estudios que combinen la teoría sobre empresa familiar e internacionalización. Por ello, este trabajo intenta dar respuesta a una cuestión que no ha sido muy tratada en la literatura, ¿es el carácter familiar un factor a tener en cuenta en los estudios sobre el compromiso internacional de las empresas familiares? En una muestra de 140 empresas españolas, la incidencia del carácter familiar ante el compromiso internacional no resulta estadísticamente significativa. Si examinamos su efecto sobre el resto de variables consideradas, solamente encontramos que, al tener en cuenta este carácter familiar, se incrementa la influencia del tamaño sobre dicho compromiso. / They are very few studies that combine family business and internationalisation theory. For this reason, the aim of this paper is to study these topics trying to answer the following question: Is the family character a factor that affects firm’s commitment in foreign markets? From a sample of 140 Spanish companies, we find that the impact of family character on firm’s commitment is not statistically significant and it only increases the positive influence of firm’s size.
