Google finance team at NCI

Posted by Teresa Murray on 21 March 2018

The class got to learn about the variety of products Google offers its consumers, and discuss Google’s recently published financial statements. The whole trip was a success, from the insight into real life products and accounts that demonstrated the application of everything the students have been learning, to the tour of the offices themselves, allowing the class to experience a real working environment.
