I have one year left of a Master of Finance degree. Over the last two quarters (January-June) I have to write a thesis. I want to work in IB after i graduate so I want to find an IB-related topic. Valuing a company is considered a "standard" topic on my school, and it is often easier to get better grades with more "innovative" topics. Does anyone have any suggestions for a topic that is "innovative" and also prepares me for an investment banking job?
