October 3, 2016

Students at Carleton University will now have the opportunity to gain hands-on experience with the industry-leading tech company Shopify, thanks to a new multi-year internship agreement. Carleton reports that this fall, 11 of its students will split time between the university’s campus and Shopify’s downtown Ottawa headquarters, where they will work in teams to contribute to real-world commercial projects. Students will earn a Bachelor of Computer Science degree, and Shopify will reportedly provide them a salary in addition to covering their tuition. “We appreciate Shopify’s generosity and look forward to continuing this innovative partnership in the years to come,” said Carleton President Roseann O’Reilly Runte. “Carleton is committed to providing our students with the kind of real-world experience that helps bring academics to life.” Carleton
