Abstract: Internationalization has become an inevitable fact in the business world since the 1970s, when a strong liberalization of the market started to take place and the technology came to a level which enabled companies to expand their businesses outside the boundaries of their countries. Businesses use range of different modalities entering foreign markets but this research is focused on exporting companies as one of the most commonly used strategy in foreign market exploitation. Research conducted on the basis of 113 exporting companies examines the role of managerial capabilities regarding their international performance. Managerial capabilities are associated with key organizational requirements necessary for entering these foreign markets, along with the methodical building of a competitive product portfolio and achieving sustainable competitive advantage. Managerial capabilities are measured by the level of their general education, skills and experience, as well as knowledge about international markets.
