Abstract [en]

This paper concerns the technological and strategic renewal of the multinational corporation (MNC), specifically how different types of entry and investment strategies in foreign locations contribute to the entry into technologies that are new to the entire multinational group. Repeated events analyses of the complete U.S. patenting activity in 173 foreign locations of 21 Swedish multinationals over the 1893-1990 period reveal a substantially higher likelihood of entry into new technologies among locations represented by acquired subsidiaries. Implications for strategy and management of the MNC are discussed.
