Workshop Information

9:00 am – 10:00 am: Multi-methods in M&A panel

Everyone is welcome!

If you are interested in the antecedents, integration processes and consequences of mergers and acquisitions and would like to learn more about state-of-the-art methods in M&A research, please plan to attend our interactive Multi-methods in M&A panel on Saturday, September 17th, from 9:00 – to 10:00 am. The panelists will examine new approaches to M&A research, examine the types of problems that can be addressed using these methods and discuss interesting problems in the M&A space that currently lack appropriate methods in an effort to allow our field to gain new insights on well-studied issues and to ask new questions.
