Resumen

El objetivo de este trabajo es doble: en primer lugar, analizar si existen diferencias en la motivación y las estrategias de aprendizaje entre los alumnos que estudian asignaturas de contabilidad en español o en inglés. En segundo lugar, investigar los principales factores que afectan a la motivación total de los estudiantes. El cuestionario Motivación y Estrategias de Aprendizaje (MSLQ) fue aplicado a una muestra de 368 alumnos del grado de Administración y Dirección de Empresas en varias asignaturas de contabilidad que se impartieron en inglés y en español. Se llevaron a cabo análisis estadísticos multivariantes y se encontraron resultados interesantes. El alumnado que estudia un grado en inglés tiene mejores estrategias de aprendizaje y más motivación que sus compañeros que estudian en español. Esto se ve reflejado en su mayor nivel de autoestima, mejor gestión del tiempo de estudio y mayor perseverancia.
