American tycoon Donald Trump will be honoured by Robert Gordon University.

The famous businessman will jet into the granite city to pick up the honour in a ceremony at the Aberdeen-based city. Mr Trump will also take the chance to view his Menie estate golf course.

He will receive a Doctor of Business Administration at a ceremony that will take place in Aberdeen on Friday October 8. Following receipt of his award, Mr Trump will deliver an acceptance address in front of an audience of invited guests and students.

The University has chosen to confer this degree on Mr Trump in recognition of his business acumen, entrepreneurial vision and the long-term future his company is planning in the North-east of Scotland.

The University has a long-standing commitment to the development of entrepreneurship within its student body. 

Professor John Harper, Acting Principal and Vice-Chancellor of Robert Gordon University, said: "Given that business and entrepreneurship lie at the heart of much of the University's academic offering, it is only fitting to award Mr Trump with an honorary degree. 

“He is recognised as one of the world's top businessmen, and our students, the entrepreneurs of tomorrow, can learn much from his business acumen, drive and focus."
