The study deals with the aggregated assessment of SMEs competitive advantage determinants in selected countries based on multiple criteria assessment methodology, in particular, Simple Additive Weighting (SAW), Complex Proportional Assessment (COPRAS) methods (applied on the basis of constructed models). At the first stage, it includes the identification and expert examination, also quantifiable assessment of essential primary determinants and their significance parameters. At second stage, the establishment of the global SMEs competitive advantage index was performed; the integrated evaluation system may include several scenarios by formation of determinant complex. Some evaluation results in 2011/2012 for Baltic countries (Lithuania as typical case) in transition stage are presented in the paper. The global index estimation was performed on basis of composed determinant complex using the SAW method; the parameters of determinant significance were defined by expert way.
