Service design training at university level: the first Service Design specialised further training will be launching soon

Date: 2023.04.17
MOME is the first university to launch a Service Design further training in Hungary. Service design is a dynamically developing profession, both in Hungary and abroad, with a steadily growing demand from companies and institutions for service designers to improve the user experience of the services in terms of logic, efficiency, and ease of use.

From September 2023, students of MOME’s new Service Design programme can also add to their knowledge in areas such as research methodology, visual techniques, strategic planning, and organisational development.

The programme is designed to provide students from diverse backgrounds with a strong theoretical and practical foundation and the opportunity to complete their portfolio, enabling them to hold their own also when working for an agency or company as service design professionals. The comprehensive knowledge gained here will help them be involved in value creation processes resulting in improved ease of use and efficiency for the services of the future. 

Service Designs trainings available in Hungary have been largely limited to various non-academic courses or university courses taught as part of a specific subject, which means the two-semester specialised further training launching at the Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design closes an important gap. 

In addition to improving creativity, empathy, and cooperation skills, it places a strong focus on systems thinking, a holistic approach, and the ability to engage various stakeholders. Students will be given both made-up and real-life service design assignments, and by the time they complete the programme they will be able to compile a portfolio from their projects which they can use to apply for service design positions in Hungary or abroad. 

Compared to the MOME OPEN Service Design Basic and Expert programmes, the freshly launching one-year programme provides an opportunity for a more intense improvement of complex competencies required for the job. 

You can find out more about the correspondence course combining both online and offline classe  here. 

Deadline for the application: 30 June

Deadline for portfolio and motivation letter upload: 13–23 July.

A vehicle developed jointly by MOME and the John von Neumann University can revolutionise urban freight delivery: Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design (MOME) unveiled a hydrogen and solar-powered vehicle at the climate summit in Dubai. The prototype of three-wheeled, multifunctional transport vehicle, developed through the collaboration of the two universities, was first showcased to the public on 1 December at the UN COP28 climate summit, and was sent to Dubai straight from the developers’ workshop.

What and how can we study at MOME in ten or even twenty years? How can the university stay up-to-date and provide answers to the pressing challenges of the century, and the needs of the future? The Foundation for the Moholy-Nagy University of Arts and Design asked the university community to develop a 21st century education model, the "University of the Future 2025-2045", in line with the international ambitions of the institution, as part of the model change. At the MOME Senate meeting in early December, the programme was approved by the Senate of the University without abstention or dissenting votes, with a 100% approval rate - a reform with such a high level of support has never been seen before in the history of the institution.

The 17th Moholy-Nagy Award was presented by József Fülöp to film director, screenwriter, and professor emeritus of the Department of Film, Television and Digital Media of the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA), and art director of the Sundance Filmmakers Lab Gyula Gazdag.
