Cross-Cultural Knowledge: Does it Make a Financial Impact on Companies?
Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
Good business practice, coupled with good cultural skills should be an unbeatable combination in mergers and acquisitions. One would think that good business practice automatically would include good intercultural skills and awareness. Unfortunately this may not always be the case. The authors of the thesis have therefore set out to prove, or disprove, whether this belief of ours is true or false. The purpose of the thesis is to investigate if cross-cultural knowledge and practises make a financial difference to companies. The study will examine if there is a statistical correlation between the financial success or failure of recently merged or acquired large companies and the amount of attention they give to handling cultural difficulties resulting from their mergers or acquisition.
