Abstract:In answering the second research question, the dissertation argues that if firms diversify after taking into account their absorptive capacity, then even after controlling for economies of scope, diversification would be associated with firm value. Thus diversification may enhance firm performance not only due to economies of scope, but also due to the new knowledge and intangibles accumulated by the firm.
