INTERNSHIPS EXPERIENCE, EMPLOYABILITY AND HIGHER EDUCATION

Internships in companies play a key role in the employability of higher education degree students from a triple perspective: training experience, approach to the reality of the company and prelude to the student's professional career. In this paper we analyse the role of internships in companies in improving the employability of undergraduate students of Economics, Business and Law at the University of Barcelona. 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 199 responses. The analysis of this survey using descriptive statistics provides results on 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.
