A different route to success

At Royal Docks Business School

At Royal Docks Business School, we pride ourselves on our differences.

Our students are different – we attract hard-working people from hugely diverse personal, business and cultural backgrounds, who know that a great career requires qualifications that are highly practical as well as academic.

Our teaching is different – you won’t find our niche programmes anywhere else and we offer flexible ways to learn, such as part-time and Executive online courses.

Our outlook is different – we are based in Canary Wharf, close to the City of London, the UK’s business capital. But our ambitions are global. Our students come from as far afield as China, India and the United States, and our staff move easily between RDBS, partner institutions and overseas campus programmes all over the world.

Put these differences together and the result is a transformational learning experience, that provides excellence in research and a study environment that you just won’t find anywhere else.


Our Mission:

"The Royal Docks Business School cultivates an engaging and responsive intellectual environment for students from diverse backgrounds who aspire to be creative, compassionate and ethical leaders and global citizens.  It provides a transformational experience that serves students, staff and communities in all aspects of excellence in research and learning including creation, dissemination and application of knowledge."


Our Vision:

“To become known among higher education business schools as a leader in global education with students and staff moving easily between our institution and partner institutions with programmes that meet the needs of 21st century students with staff who are recognized experts in their disciplines.”
