This dissertation explores how m-learning or the use of mobile devices as a support tool in the teaching-learning process is part of the educational innovation that suggests the influence of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT), in the pedagogical orientation directed to the university population. The paper exposes how problem-based learning (PBL) is a facilitator for the application of action research and decision making, and how the creation of a virtual laboratory for the realization of business practices that works through a mobile application will favor the symbiotic relationship University - Company by enabling the approach of students with the productive sector; bringing them closer to the business environment,challenging them to generate alternative solutions to real problems and preparing them for their intervention in society as future professionals. The goal is that by incorporating mobile digital elements easily accessible to students (smart phones, digital tablets and technologies related to the Internet) in teaching strategies, collaborative learning and knowledge generation will be motivated. The program is intended for students of the Faculty of Business and Administrative Sciences of the Corporación Universitaria de Sabaneta who are currently in eighth and ninth semester and who are about to apply to the business practice phase as a requirement to qualify for the degree. For this purpose, a descriptive qualitative approach study is proposed in which different tools of information collection are linked using quantitative and qualitative methods under a pre-experimental design of a single case. Once the study has been carried out, its characteristics, responsibilities and practices will make it possible to generate a model that favors its employability in different educational contexts and training areas.
