Learning by doing drives the classroom message home. And earning while learning? Hard to beat.
Carleton University and Shopify, the leading cloud-based, multichannel commerce platform designed for small- and medium-sized businesses, are introducing a new model of learning that embeds students in an industrial environment.
This fall, 11 Carleton students are splitting their time between the university’s campus and Shopify’s downtown Ottawa headquarters. Students will learn some course concepts at Shopify by joining teams and contributing to projects, with the freedom to take as much or as little time as needed for deep understanding of concepts, in addition to taking theoretical courses and electives at Carleton.
