The Anwar Gargash Diplomatic Academy (AGDA), formerly the Emirates Diplomatic Academy, is a prestigious institution in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates. It is dedicated to training diplomats and government leaders in international relations.

Established in 2014, AGDA supports the UAE Ministry of Foreign Affairs by educating and preparing Emirati diplomats and government officials to represent the country's interests on the global stage effectively. The academy offers graduate programs and executive training courses and conducts research on foreign policy and diplomacy, all with a focus on the UAE's relations with other countries.
