Intuit is a global technology platform that helps our customers and communities overcome their most important financial challenges. Serving approximately 100 million customers worldwide with TurboTax, QuickBooks, Mint and Credit Karma, we believe that everyone should have the opportunity to prosper. We never stop working to find new, innovative ways to make that possible.
What We Offer
Many people in communities facing economic hardship are not prepared for today’s job market. Intuit is laying the groundwork for future prosperity through job readiness. We are leveraging our products to bring new tools into the classroom for educators, offering courses on design thinking, and providing simulations to help students develop personal finance and entrepreneurial skills. We are also working to address the disproportionate impact of the digital divide on students in underserved communities.
Teachers today are being challenged and asked to educate their students in ways never before. Intuit’s job readiness simulations and resources are designed and optimized to be taught in any environment – in an instructor-led physical or virtual classroom. With step-by-step instructions, teacher resources, and much more, it’s easy to integrate real-world tools into your class, regardless of your teaching situation heading back to school this Fall.
- TurboTax Simulation: Gone are the days of teaching taxes with pen and paper. Starting this Fall, we will be launching a brand new educational and gamified Intuit TurboTax simulation, where students can practice filing taxes with one of our five pre-selected personas from any state. They will learn what it’s like to file taxes as a part time student, college student, gig economy worker, and so much more. Support and prepare your students for their futures and start alleviating future tax day anxiety now!
- Mint Simulations: Five personal finance modules using the Intuit product, Mint, to teach students how to create budgets, understand and build their credit scores, compare credit cards, analyze spending behaviors, and create financial goals in engaging and relevant ways.
- Free QuickBooks for education: Using QuickBooks, building a base of accounting and bookkeeping skills allows students to build in-demand skills and prepare for their futures as entrepreneurs or accountants. We’ve recently launched a dedicated QuickBooks Educator portal, allowing educators to easily manage their teaching and support their students all year long. Sign up for free now.
