Asia e University (AeU) is a flexible, international university, set in Asia by Asians for Asia, under the Asia Cooperation Dialogue (ACD), a body created in 2002 to promote Asian cooperation at a continental level. Established as an initiative of Malaysia, a prime mover of e-education, it is supported by 31 ACD Member Countries, as confirmed at the ACD Ministerial Meetings held in Islamabad in 2005 and Doha in 2006. AeU collaborates with Institutions of Higher Learning (IHLs) and Training Centres in the ACD Member Countries to offer quality academic and professional training programmes that are affordable and accessible.

AeU also acts as a facilitator for the mutual accreditation and recognition of degrees and academic programmes among Asian IHLs. It also acts as an enabler for IHLs in Asia to leverage on each other’s resources and facilities including sharing of academic and professional programmes.

AeU is also an instrument for greater Asia-wide cooperation and acts as a catalyst for narrowing the digital divide among communities and nations. It will actively promote e-education to meet the future human capital needs of Asia. AeU is set to open minds and offer opportunities for all in Asia.
