Departing from previous research on innovation adoption, this paper aims to test the differences and effects of age, size, prior technology, and proximity on institutional innovation adoption. We start by providing literature on the area of innovation adoption, distinguishing between organizational innovation adoption and the individual adopter within an organization. We present the results of a non-experimental cross-sectional study design about adopting mobile applications with 208 universities worldwide. The hypotheses are that higher age, bigger size, more prior technological changes, and higher proximity support a faster innovation adoption by universities. Results partially support the hypotheses and lead to understanding the innovation adoption in a particular institutional context of innovations influenced by adopting the organization's users.
