From the 2024/25 academic year, the programme will only be available in English language. Our MA programme enables students to become open-minded professionals who are receptive to global trends and local challenges, and can provide sustainable responses through material-oriented solutions. 
Students can learn to use their art to make an internationally relevant positive impact, whether by creating craft-produced limited-series items or autonomous works of art intended for exhibitions and the art market.
Research assignments, design studies and studio exercises provide opportunities to participate in national and international professional events, exhibitions, competitions and facilitate career advancement after graduation. 


Organised for the 25th year in a row, Designblok is one of the greatest design fairs in Central Europe. This year, MOME Design Institute also had a booth with works by Ceramics and Product Design students.

At the Best of MOME ‘23, this year’s top MA diploma projects from the Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design made their debut on 14 October at the Kastner Kommunity. The event highlighted the questions and issues that occupy the minds of the youngest generation of designers and the various design responses to them.

Organised for the 25th year, on 4 to 8 October, Designblok will also include a booth by the MOME Design Institute with Designer Maker and Product Design MA students. This year’s theme is “Journey”.
