I am a college student at Miami University and desperately want to trade as a career after college. Miami does not offer any classes specifically on futures, options or derivatives. The topics are touched in several courses but nothing very in-depth. I am attempting to put together an independent study program with a professor and he suggested I try to find syllabi from trading firms or other training programs. I have not had much success finding these. At the moment, I am leaning toward Hull's "Options, Futures, and Other Derivatives." Does anyone know how I may get a training program or syllabus? Please suggest any material that you feel should be covered in the course that would be essential for future success in the business. Thanks.
