Since established in 2006 with accreditation from the Ministry of Education, AUE has grown with an ever-increasing number of students from 25 different countries. With an American educational system intact, AUE boasts seven colleges of Media and Mass Communication, Business Administration, Law, Fine Arts and Design, Computer Information Technology, Education and security and global studies, which all cater to the current and future needs of all the dominating and niche markets.

Students are able to choose from various specializations, many of which are completely unique to the GCC region and the Middle East as a whole. This encourages them to build confidence in their work and strengthen their learning capabilities with a range of undergraduate and graduate degrees taught by a plethora of educators, holding PhDs from all over the world and renowned for their own academic achievements.

AUE’s mission is to continue moving forward, adopt new technologies and utilize innovative methodologies that add value to all the multitudes of the educational process. What sets AUE apart is the aim to create leaders spearheading their respective fields of study.

AUE’s approach is tailored on a student-centralized stance which puts the needs of the students in the forefront. The aim is the elevation of the levels of the outcomes of the students, encouraging and aiding their progression through hands-on experience and an on-going connection to the many partnerships of the University.
