Welcome to the XBMA Forum!

The XBMA Forum is sponsored by the International Institute for the Study of Cross-Border Investment and M&A (XBMA), a joint venture between the Guanghua School of Management at Peking University, the Stern School of Business at New York University, and Judge Business School at the University of Cambridge.


The XBMA Institute seeks to promote the high-level study and analysis of cross-border mergers, acquisitions, and strategic investments. This Forum is intended to provide research, analysis and data on the current market dynamics that fuel business expansion through cross-border M&A as well as the financial, legal, governmental, and societal frameworks that propel or constrain such activity. Contributors may include the Institute’s advisory board, founding members, symposia speakers, and guest commentators.
