MOME is among the supporters of the Dual Career Programme of the Hungarian Olympic Committee

Date: 2023.11.30
The Hungarian Olympic Committee (HOC) signed a collaboration agreement with 23 higher education institutions, including the Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design on 29 November. The purpose of the Dual Career Programme is to help athletes achieve their goals (whether by providing physical or mental support) and enable them not to have to choose between sports and studying or working.

As part of the programme, athletes can have a customised study schedule for getting a degree while preparing for competitions or the Olympics. Top level athletes are already preparing for the 2024 Paris Olympics, which means the agreement not only fills an important gap but is also very timely. In addition to MOME, 21 other universities and colleges joined the HOC’s initiative.

Organised at the Hungarian Academy of Sciences, the signing ceremony was preceded by a conference featuring presentations by president of the HOC Zsolt Gyulay, as well as a number of Olympic champions and sports professionals including sports psychologists, coaches, athletes, and physicians.
