You could parent one item to the one you want it to rotate around, then keyframe or apply and expression to the parent object.

You could also do it with a parent constraint or use a circle curve as a mothion path around the desirred object.

the ways Chris suggested would suffice

if it's only the orbiting object you want to be moving then i would use the motion path approach

in the curves shelf you can create a nurbs circle
in the animation menu set you can find Animate>Motion Paths>Attach to motion path
for further information on motion paths refer to the Maya tutorial on it that came with Maya
