On 3 April, Business – Level 3 Extended Diploma students visited INTUIT offices to get a first-hand experience of business development. INTUIT was founded in 1983 and has since grown into a multinational software provider for small businesses, with a revenue of $6.0billion, referenced across insider sites including Forbes and Fortune 100.
INTUIT also make QuickBooks(TM),the world’s number 1 online accounting software with over 3.5 million users worldwide.
Following a tour of the offices, students benefitted from a sit-down conversation with staff to understand how the cutting-edge company provides an exciting, modern business environment for its employees. Students learnt about the importance of company values, and how collaboration works between teams in the professional world.
Trips like this do so much to help bring our Business students’ learning to life and enhance their understanding of the growth in online financial products. Students took a great deal from the trip, describing it as “a real eye opener” into the broader industry, but also expressed great interest in joining the company.
INTUIT marketing executive Julie Trunkfield is keen to ensure that our students are able to use these experiences to drive their ambitions and gain insights into how to develop their career readiness. The week before, Molly Swan from INTUIT attended our ‘Dragons’ Den’ pitching event as a panellist, giving students expert feedback on their own projects.
