Is a Bachelors degree a requirement to work at most/some/any of the prop firms? If so, which firms require degrees? I only ask because upon looking at the websites of certain prop. trading firms (Heartland Securites, First New York Securities, Schonfield, Spectrum Trading, etc.) it seems as though they require a college degree from their applicants. However, these firms also seem to be the one's that invest the most time in training each trader. Any info. would be appreciated. Also, any advise as far as a good firm for a new trader to start off with would be appreciated. I am mainly looking for a firm that invests a lot of time and energy by having their very profitable traders train and mentor their new traders.
