INTERNSHIPS EXPERIENCE, TRAINING PROJECT AND SATISFACTION OF STUDENTS

Student’s Internships in companies play an important role from a three points of view: training experience, approach to the reality of companies and labour market and prelude to the student’s professional career. The level of satisfaction achieved in these three aspects shows the success of the internships as part of the training of university graduates. In this paper we analyse the satisfaction of undergraduate students of Economics, Business and Law at the University of Barcelona with internships in companies. A survey has been carried out among the students who have carried out internships, with questions aimed at evaluating the improvement of skills, as well as on their professional orientation. This survey had 200 responses. The analysis of this survey using descriptive statistics and a regression model provides results of satisfaction of students through the improvement of student competencies that otherwise cannot be achieved at the University. These results allow us to observe improvement in the three aspects mentioned above. Students find internships convenient; they have improved learning and management skills. Furthermore, motivation in internships in companies has been an important element of its success in employability. Satisfaction of students with internships is high, and employability of graduates that carry out internships increase, according with this results. There is no appreciable gender bias in the estimation results.
