Intuit Idea Jam

As a way to identify ambitious, creative and competent individuals (i.e., potential employees), once a year the financial software company Intuit assigns a real-world problem facing their small-business customers to our students. They are grouped in inter-disciplinary and inter-school teams of four and work together to devise innovative solutions for presentation to Intuit’s upper management. The presentations took place on CMC’s campus Friday, November 30th.
