Abstract: This work analyses the migration experience of managers and entrepreneurs involved in innovation sectors. The first objective is to identify explanatory factors of the international mobility of highly skilled personnel, while the second is to analyse the influence of international mobility in the professional careers of these individuals. The analysis is conducted from a gender perspective in which the differences between men and women's mobility strategies and professional development are compared. The methodology is based on interviews carried out among national and international managers and entrepreneurs with significant international experience in terms of length and functions. The results show that reasons for migrating are related to training, although there is a clear orientation towards the internationalisation of career profiles. Once the cycle is completed, most decide to return for professional and/or personal reasons. The gender analysis reflects the agency of women in mobility strategies, but reveals that women are more influenced than men by family issues.
