Projektin kuvaus: 
MASG was a two-year research project funded by the Finnish Funding Agency for Technology and Innovation (TEKES) and partner firms. In this research project, we explore the role of cross-border M&As in executing the strategies for growth of firms operating in the high-technology field. Research questions to be addressed are as follows. How do firms structure acquisition programs to better achieve strategy and growth objectives? How are M&As managed within an acquisition program? What country-specific conditions provide the most beneficial environment for technology acquirers to benefit from cross-border M&As? What value drivers do acquirers rely on in valuing targets in different market conditions?
