I joined Derivatives Professional Certificate course with NYIF last year and I can say it is one of the best courses about financial derivatives that I have taken during my career. It covers wide range of topics and it helped me to sharpen my professional skills. From Forwards and futures to swaps and options. I learned how to price an option with Black-Scholes and Binomial models. I would recommend the certificate for anyone who is dealing with derivatives or want to gain solid understanding about them. Finally, I had a great opportunity to connect with people in the field and discuss what we learned.
