24 February 2010 review
The American University in the Emirates (AUE) launched a new Master of Diplomatic Studies degree (MA in Diplomatic Studies) with first classes starting 27 February 2010 (press release 24 February 2010).
The press release said "American University in the Emirates launches first accredited degree in diplomacy in the Gulf" but didn't say by which body the degree was accredited by. However, the Commission for Academic Accreditation in the UAE (part of the MOHESR) website lists a Master of Arts in Diplomacy as one of the AUE accredited courses, which is presumably the same thing.
All (or most) AUE Associate and Bachelor degree programs appear to be accredited according to the CAA website.
AUE is divided into 5 colleges:
College of Business Administration
College of Computer Information Technology
College of Fine Arts and Design
College of Law
College of Media and Mass Communication

AUE has Ministry of Higher Education licence, but only for Associate programs so far.
Same websites at www.ace.ac.ae and www.aue.ae but nothing found at www.ace.ae (update 27 Jan 2010: website seems to have moved from www.aue.ac.ae to www.aue.ae in 2009?)

Tuition fees are 2,400-5,000 dhs per course. Not obvious on website how many courses / credits needed to complete a degree.
