I am pleased to announce our new collaboration with Shopify starting Fall 2020, thanks to Kayla Niland for joining us virtually from Ireland to deliver an orientation to our e-Retailing class. Through the Open Learning Program, Shopify will offer our students access to a free, fully functional Shopify store as part of the following two courses:
BUS 2504 Web Development: The Digital Business Management BComm students enrolled in the BUS 2504 Winter course will have access to the program starting in their second year, enabling students to build real businesses over the course of three years. The students are encouraged to utilize the store for other self-directed course assignments in their third and fourth years after consulting with their professors.
FASH 4500 e-Retailing: The Fashion Management BComm students enrolled in the FASH 4500 Fall course will have access to a 6-month subscription starting the day they sign-up. At the end of that time, the store will freeze until the students are ready to move to a paid plan, and they can reactivate their stores at any time by contacting Support.
