Abstract: Despite the importance of International Assignments for companies competing in global economy, research to date has not clearly identified what effectiveness means in this context. In this paper it is analyzed the possible relationship between indicators traditionally considered evidence of expatriate success: adjustment, performance and permanence; introducing the situation of the home country as potential influencer. Possible influence of gender is also explored, in order to determine if low performance of female expatriate explains its sub representation in allocations. Data from 124 Spanish expatriate managers suggest that permanence depends on adjustment and results in host country, but not the situation in Spain. Gender does not introduce significant differences in our results.
