The Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design is committed to train traditional artist-craftsmen, as well as architects, designers and visual communication designers. Besides training artists, the University contributes to the rise of visual culture with the training of drawing teachers; and the art manager training course provides a link between the various branches of economy and the arts. The University assumes responsibility for elite training, not only in its graduate courses, but also in its thematic DLA and PhD courses, as well as in various other postgraduate courses. Regarding its library, art gallery and publications, the MOME is the spiritual workshop of applied arts. Instead of the traditional division between applied and fine arts and the separation of various art forms, the University enhances the openness and interconnection of the taught subjects.
