When there is a merger or acquisition, there are business synergies which is the prime reason for the the two entities coming together.
However an area which needs a lot of attention is HR. This is so because there will be a lot of uncertainty amongst employees, duplication of jobs, cultural differences between the two entities, work ethics and performance standards would also vary. The new entity will also need to draw up new policies, ensure good fit of the existing employees, draw up VRS plans for surplus employees, formulate the new compensation packages, chart out fresh training schedules and syllabus etc.
All the above areas offer you ample scope to work on an indepth study and come up with a good thesis that will be both beneficial and practical to the new entity.
