MOME looking for its next rector in an international tender

In what is a first for Hungarian higher education, the Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design (MOME) is looking for its next rector through an open international tender.


The renewal of MOME has reached a milestone. The Foundation for Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design, the institution’s maintainer, has decided to introduce a new practice for the selection of the next rector, in a manner that is unprecedented in Hungarian higher education. The most important novelty is that the new tender is announced on an international level, i.e. the university is looking for the most suitable leader from within and beyond national borders.

“We are a national institution, but art and design are an international language. We can do the most for Hungary by building a university where our students have the best chance to achieve world-class success at the highest rate. To do this, we need the best rector available, whether they come from Hungary, from the region, or from anywhere in the world,” said Gergely Böszörményi-Nagy, Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the MOME Foundation, in regards to the tender.

Another important new element is that in addition to the professional background, the call also emphasizes the requirements related to leadership skills. These include dynamic and future-oriented thinking, the ability to support staff on a daily basis, excellent language skills, and a high level of international contacts that can be used to the benefit of the university.

The innovative aspects of the tender do not end there: MOME is dedicating more than a year and a half to the selection and preparation of the new rector, as opposed to the limited period of a few months that is usual in Hungarian higher education.
