School Description

Robert Gordon University’s history can be traced back nearly three and a half centuries. The University gets its name from its benefactor Robert Gordon who was a merchant in Aberdeen. The University was originally founded as a hospital aimed at educating the young sons and grandsons of Burgesses of the Guild who were too poor to maintain them at school. The Institute grew over time and was awarded university status in 1992.

At the end of the 20th Century the University’s Business School was moved to the Garthdee campus. Over the years Garthdee has grown enormously and now encompasses: Gray's School of Art; The Scott Sutherland School of Architecture and Built Environment; Aberdeen Business School; the Faculty of Health and Social Care and RGU Sport, in addition to its administration buildings.

    Robert Gordon University revoked Donald J. Trump, Chairman and President of The Trump Organization, of the honorary title of Doctor of Business Administration (Hon DBA) awarded to him by RGU in October 2010; this was done following his comments about Muslims being banned from entering the US, which the university said was ‘wholly incompatible’ with its ethos and values.

        2012-2013, MSc

        I was very scared of pursuing my master degree. I didn't know what to expect. I didn't know if moving to another brand new place, with culture really different from mine would be a good decision. There is not a day I am happy with myself for making the sudden decision that this is my place, my master degree ( I did MSc Management). I absolutely fell in love with all my professors and tutors. As one of them once told me, they do everything to help us, teach us, guide us and they are never against us. The lectures were always interesting and I loved that we had a couple of teachers for different topics. Furthermore, the tutorials was amazing. The work was just right and gave me a good sense of what the subject was about. I had valuable discussions with both professors and fellow students. My dissertation supervisor was more than kind and helpful to me and I managed to have THE best experience writing it. Moreover, RGU is a very lovely place.
