I have to think about a good master thesis subject before the end of this year. Preferably, I want to write my master thesis at a well-known company. In order to do that, I first need to get an excellent proposal. Any thoughts on the following topics:

1) Compensation of banking executives (or: Managerial compensation packages: Incentive pay or reward for luck?)
2) The role of business angels networks for financing entrepreneurial companies
3) M&A announcements and bank / borrower stock returns

1 seems interesting, but not for a company in my opinion. 2 is better and 3 seems a topic that has been researched before. Can you maybe think of any other relevant topics? I can use the WRDS database, so getting data should not be a big problem.
