Thesis working title

The impact of institutional evolution on business groups and the role of dynamic capabilities

Nimer's research focuses on the institutional evolution in emerging markets and its impact on the performance of emerging market firms specifically business groups. This research aims to enhance our understanding of how business groups respond to institutional reform, and are enabled by their unique dynamic capabilities to strengthen and grow in fierce competitive markets. The findings of the study will advance research on the phenomena of the business group. It will also provide leaders with insight into the structures, strategies and capabilities that enable such multinationals to continue to grow as they confront changes in the institutional context.
