Slik beskriver kandidaten selv essensen i avhandlingen:

Managerial power in Chinese firms abroad

This thesis as a whole explores how managerial power directly influences and interacts with contextual factors to influence ownership mode choices (the choice of high- or low-equity in foreign subsidiaries) of Chinese firms abroad.

The thesis includes one introductory chapter and five individual papers.

The introductory chapter mainly explains why this thesis focuses on ownership mode choice, managerial power and the Chinese context, introduces the five papers and describes the sample and data.

Paper1 examines the direct effect of CEO tenure and how some organizational factors moderate this effect; paper 2 examines how CEO ownership interacts with some governance factors to have impact; paper 3 explores how board size can interact with some governance factors to influence ownership mode choice.; paper 4 examines the interaction effects of CEO power and joint venture experience obtained in inward FDI; while paper 5 tests how firm age, firm size and CEO tenure each can interact with CEO political connection to influence ownership mode choice.

Each paper focuses on different kinds of managerial power, applies different theories and makes different contributions.

The thesis as a whole is based on an eclectic theoretical framework that describes the direct effects of decision makers, firm internal environments and firm external environments and the interactions effects between the three factors, and thus it makes a broad theoretical contribution.

The choice of emerging markets (such as China) as the research context also makes some empirical and theoretical contributions.
