Purpose: Internships in Enterprise (IE) is considered as an element that guarantees the connection between the University and the socio-economic world (business) where both actors carry out their activities. The aim of this paper is threefold. On the one hand, we investigate in the role with the PE in the process of professionalization of the future graduate. On the other hand, emphasize the role played by ICT as an engine to ensure and facilitate the creation of a network of communication between: Enterprise, University and the student. Finally, we reflect and analyze those aspects that should be improved and the extent that the application of information and communication technologies can help in this task.

Design/methodology/approach: The methodology used is the implementation of the case method. This methodology is the one that best ensures the attainment of the goals we have proposed.

More than 76% of the students who have made PE scored with a remarkably high the work carried out by the guardian in the company. In this group the guardian has a note between the 8 and 10. The index of satisfaction showing students is high. nine of every ten students in practices considered carried out practices to bring value to their CV, which will make that you assess what is best in future selection processes.
