MOME Diploma 2022

Date: 2022.05.23
The 2022 diploma process of Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design – the final and most important event series in the university years of graduating students – is about to begin.

After the public diploma defence of nearly 120 students from 12 Master’s programmes, an exhibition from their thesis projects will be available for viewing at the refreshed campus, and the closing graduation ceremony will feature speeches by two illustrious international experts, from the philosophy and the design scenes, respectively. 

Diploma defence 

Each year, graduation is a crucial period not only for MOME’s graduating students, but also for the entire university community. The process starts with the public diploma defence by the MA students, where they present their thesis projects completed as a conclusion of their studies to the examination committee. Once again, this year’s MA diploma defences will take place live, at the university campus between 31 May and 16 June. 

The schedule with the precise dates and venues is available at: 

Diploma exhibition 

An exhibition featuring the thesis projects of graduating MA students will be open for viewing between the 17 and 18 June on MOME’s campus. The event, which in 2021 took place online due to the pandemic, will be held live this year, in the refreshed buildings and spaces of the university. 
The exact exhibition venues will be announced at a later date.
Last year's online diploma exhibition may be viewed here.

Graduation ceremony 

At the conclusion of the graduation process, BA and MA students will receive their diploma at the graduation ceremony. Two guests, a prominent figure of philosophy and of design each is invited by the Foundation for Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design to speak at this year’s ceremony. 

Philosopher and culture theoretician Byung-Chul Han and chief design officer for Mercedes-Benz Gorden Wagener will deliver a speech at the BA graduation ceremony on 30 June, and at the MA graduation ceremony on 1 July, respectively.
