Information on the Bilingual Group (ADE)

The faculty of Economics and Business includes in its grade bilingual groups (Spanish-English) in the degree of Business Management and Administration (BMA) since the academic year 2011-12. The aim of this innovative educational project, carried out in the scope of the European Area of Higher Education, and the reform of the educational system is that of enhancing the professional integration of the graduates, both in Spain as well as abroad, accomplishing a greater adaptation to social demands and fostering internationalization. The project was originally conceived with the objective of generating a steady teaching offer and anticipates a gradual implementation, year by year, of the bilingual course, in such a way that the first course was taught in the academic year 2011-2012, the second in 2012-2013, and so on.

Course Offering / Entry

70 places will be offered for the bilingual group of each of the different courses. Students having taken place in previous courses have guaranteed admission and, for the remaining students- in case the demand exceeds the offer and once the requirements are met-, the applications will be sorted according to the entry mark obtained for bachelor degrees offered in Spanish public universities.

Entry Requirements

Students having been granted admission in the degree of Business Management and Administration (BMA) - after the pre-enrollment process-, and meeting one of the requirements below, are eligible for their inclusion in the bilingual group.

Certifying a B1 level in English Having studied the bilingual modality during secondary school Having passed the corresponding English placement test


Lectures will be taught by a group of professors of considerable experience and qualification in English as a second language. Attendance at the bilingual group will be maintained at least for a term. After the first year, attendance will be compulsory along the complete academic year. The participation in the present project will be reflected in the European Diploma Supplement and, if relevant, in the academic transcripts of the corresponding degree. The commission of International Relations may value positively the participation in the bilingual group so as to select candidates for the Erasmus Programme.

Placement Test for the Bilingual Group in BMA (Certification of B1 Level)

Description: Foreign language placement test for those students that would like to enroll on the course and cannot certify B1 level in the corresponding language. 
The University of Murcia sets placement tests for those who cannot document their command of English, French, German, Italian and Spanish aimed at foreign students (B1 level). More information.

Through Cambridge English Language Assessment one can as well certify B1 or superior levels.
