Stevo Pavicevic presents his work in the 35th Strategic Management Society Annual International Conference in Denver (USA)

We are happy to announce that our doctoral candidate Stevo Pavicevic presented in the Strategic Management Society 35th Annual International Conference 2015 in Denver (USA) his work titled "Global Migration and the Choice Between Acquisitions and Alliances" coauthored by Professor Thomas Keil (Chair in International Management) and Professor Markku Maula (Aalto University).

In this paper, we investigate global migration as a means of reducing information asymmetry in the context of international entry and expansion. In particular, we argue and empirically show that global migration – which reduces information asymmetries by facilitating information flows between the firm’s home and host countries – increases the likelihood of a focal firm choosing an acquisition over an alliance. Our findings contribute to the literature on information economics and extend our understanding of migration’s role in international management.
