    Este articulo investiga el uso que le dan los exportadores con experiencia para la toma de decisiones a la informacion en el ambiente de negocios. Especificamente, examina la estructura cognoscitiva o el “mapa mental” que los exportadores manifiestan cuando consideran nuevos mercados. Con base en investigaciones previas y en el procedimiento de particion logica, identificamos tres niveles de estructura cognoscitiva de la informacion para exportar: 1) Construcciones primarias del ambiente; 2) conceptos secundarios de exportacion; 3) variables especificas para la toma de decisiones al exportar. Nuestros hallazgos indican que los exportadores con experiencia manifiestan una estructura cognoscitiva de informacion distinta y la consideran je rarquica en valor cuando se analizan los mercados internacionales. Los resultados tambien indican que los exportadores que manifiestan una actitud proactiva y sistematica en la toma de decisiones relacionadas con la exportacion tienden a tener mas exito en sus actividades.
