MOME among the Top 100 Design Schools in Europe

domusEurope's Top 100 Schools of Architecture and Design 2013 published as the supplement of the December issue of Domus listed MOME as the only Hungarian institution among the top 100 design schools in Europe.

Domus' back issue examines European institutions on the basis of their "curricular focus, pedagogical identity, and the type of educational environment that is fostered", as well as "collaborative networks, strong professors and exceptional student work".

Listed in the Product Design category, in the description of MOME the editors underline that the school's greatest attraction is its educational approach incorporating contemporary methods with traditional arts and crafts, while its strong focus on drawing gives students the skills necessary to move on to jobs in the future or continue their studies at other institutions. According to the publication of Domus "Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design is a well-rounded design institution that balances theory, practice and technical skills".

The selection based on interviews with students and school representatives, as well as school websites, underscores MOME's vivid university life and the campus arranged around a garden offering all required services and facilities in one central location, thus creating an environment where students can live, work and create in a collaborative community. The description also stresses the importance of partnerships with different businesses (Mercedes-Benz, Electrolux, Philips, Braun) and the participation in different competitions such as the Braun Prize, as well as events like Budapest Design Week, and the visits and lectures of international designers like Peter Zumthor, Karim Rashid and Marcel Wanders.
