Literature on business internships identifies beneficial effects on its main three stakeholders: students, employers, and higher education institutions. Furthermore, some authors have identified additional effects when studying international internships, specially referred to improved intercultural skills and learning outcomes. Increment of international internships is a trend in most European universities. The Universitat Politècnica de València has had a noteworthy increase of international internships is the last years, especially through the European founded former programme Leonardo da Vinci and Erasmus Placement. As intercultural skills are being more demanded by employers in a globalized world, it is expected that this increase in the internships abroad will have a positive effect on the employability of the graduates of the Universitat Politècnica de València.
