Robinson College of Business – Georgia State University


The Robinson College of Business was founded in 1913 as the Georgia Tech Evening School of Commerce, changing its name in 1998 with a $10 million endowment from the namesake entrepreneur and philanthropist. It is accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business International (AACSB). Robinson offers the following degrees: B.B.A., MBA, Executive MBA, more than a dozen specialized master’s degrees, Ph.D., Doctor of Business Administration, and flexible graduate certificates that can be applied toward eligible master’s degrees later down the road.


The Robinson College of Business occupies two buildings on Georgia State University’s campus in downtown Atlanta. Some administrative offices are located at 35 Broad Street. Within the next couple of years, all of Robinson’s academic units and administrative offices will be housed in 55 Park Place.

Robinson also holds classes at its Buckhead Center. Both campuses are surrounded by Fortune 500 and 100 companies, startups, financial and consulting firms, and nonprofits.

Robinson has longstanding relationships with academic institutions across the world.


The downtown campus is housed in the 14-story Robinson College of Business Administration Building, a historic high-rise that was added to the National Register of Historical Places in 1972. This building houses the Dean’s office and several other administrative offices, and is close to both Downtown Atlanta’s financial center and the rest of the GSU campus. The downtown campus holds classes for the Flex MBA program.

GSU’s Alpharetta Center, 30 minutes north of Atlanta in Alpharetta, GA, offers state-of-the-art AV technology in its two lecture rooms, 70-seat Flex Room, 44-station computer lab, and four breakout/conference rooms. It is setup for wireless teleconferencing and available for reservation.

The Buckhead Center is located in the heart of Buckhead, Atlanta’s other major financial center just north of Downtown. The Center offers lecture and breakout rooms that, comparable to the Alpharetta Center, are set up for video teleconferencing with wifi. The Center also offers two lobby spaces, on the 5th and 6th floor, that are available for event rental. Classes for the Executive MBA and other non-MBA programs are held at the Buckhead Center.


Robinson’s more than 200 faculty members possess cross-disciplinary expertise that is both broad and deep. Their knowledge expands beyond the boundaries of traditional business, spanning areas including engineering, mathematics, and technology. The college’s part-time instructors hold leadership positions at companies throughout Atlanta.

The University of Texas at Dallas ranks Robinson among the top 50 business schools worldwide for business research. As of 2024, the Maurice R. Greenberg School of Risk Science is ranked #3 in North America and #14 in the world for research productivity in actuarial science by the University of Nebraska. The college also is home to three Fulbright scholars.
