Ottawa’s Shopify expands on-the-job learning program to York University
The Ottawa Business Journal features Shopify's expansion of Dev Degree to York University.
After three years piloting the degree program in Ottawa with Carleton University, Shopify is expanding its workplace learning concept to York University in Toronto.
Dev Degree, as it’s called, offers students enrolled in a post-secondary institution’s computer science degree the chance to do roughly half of their studies on the job at Shopify’s offices. Shopify matches students with the e-commerce giant’s developer teams to align skills learned in the classroom with real-world expectations.
