Research paper by Mr Pavicevic and Prof Keil in AOM Best Paper Proceedings

The article “Migration and the Choice between Acquisitions and Alliances: an Information Economics Perspective” co-authored by Mr Pavicevic and Professor Keil together with Professor Markku Maula (Aalto University) has been selected for publication in Academy of Management Best Paper Proceedings 2016. 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.
