Options University was originally founded in 2004 by Brett Fogle and Ron Ianieri with the goal of assisting aspiring investors to find success in the world of options trading while also reducing risks. Courtney Smith a long time trader, author and CEO of numerous financial firms is the new owner. The company is undergoing a lot of changes so it remains to be seen if it will once again become a leader in options education.
Ron Ianieri has moved on to teach at his own website you can read more about him and his training here at IONOptions.
Currently OU offers courses in 3 categories and an upcoming bootcamp. They offer Bachelors courses (Options 101), Intermediate (Advanced Options and Options Mastery Series) and their PhD level courses which are not currently offered but include Gamma Trading, Synthetics, Directional trading, and Premium Collection.
Options University Bootcamp
