    Abstract

    This paper focuses on the roles of collective learning and teaching initiatives in mergers and acquisitions. We examine how these managerial processes influence different types of knowledge flows. We also explore the antecedents of these managerial processes, including knowledge complementarity, knowledge complexity, cultural acceptance and cultural preservation. We test our hypotheses on a sample of domestic and cross-cultural acquisitions conducted by Finnish companies.
