This paper, by inserting itself in the field of study that has tried to display some thoughts on the pedagogic practices brought by the new educational technologies, aimed at uncovering the meanings attributed by both students and teachers to the use of the technology of information as a mediator in the teaching-learning relation in the undergraduate Business Program of the Universidade Federal de Lavras (UFLA). The analytical effort done here shows that the technology of information as a mediator of this relation gets different meanings both for teachers and students. In the perception of those actors, the technologies of communication and information- when performing the role of mediators in the teaching-learning relation in management- stimulate the quest for knowledge and improvement of the teaching quality. However, the educational process results can meet some barriers and limitations associated to the technological infra-structure, the lack of experience of the actors in working in environments mediated by technologies of information.
