Abstract (2. Language): 
In the current situation of the global economy, collaboration may provide an opportunity for companies by engaging in strategic alliances. One of the main reasons that companies participate in strategic alliances is to share knowledge and expertise and to increase the utilization of knowledge by organizational learning and knowledge transfer. The aim of the pr esent study is to make a comparison between two specific international strategic alliances to investigate the role of organizational learning and knowledge transfer in building strategic alliances within companies.
