Ex-Trump University High-Ranking Executives Run Florida-based Career College
Trump University's former high-ranking executives are now two of the top executives at a Florida-based adult education school, Ultimate Medical Academy.
The career college runs a 13,000 enrolled students and annually received more than $150 million in federal student aid, and the institution is accredited by the non-profit education corporation, ACICS.
The Ultimate Medical Academy was previously a for-profit institution which is connected to a New York-based investment company, and last year, was acquired by a Denver-based tax-exempt non-profit organization that had minor activity prior to the affiliation, Huffington Post reported.
Donald Trump, the presidential hopeful of the Republican Party in the 2016 presidential election, has been slammed with scrutiny for his unlicensed real estate institution.
Trump has been instituted with legal proceedings by former students, as well as Eric Schneiderman (New York Attorney General), who alleged that Trump University was a scam that failed to hand over its promises and left students with minimal knowledge for tuition payments as high as $34,995.
The lawsuit documents against Trump University found out that David Highbloom, who was the chief operating officer of Trump University - is now the Ultimate Medical Academy's co-chief executive officer.
Meanwhile, the former director of operations at Trump University - April Neumann, is now the vice president of corporate alliance & career services at Ultimate Medical Academy.
But, there are more connections between Ultimate Medical Academy and Trump University. From the LinkedIn profile of Jason Schauer - it indicated that he worked at UMA and with prior positions held at Trump University.
The LinkedIn profile of the vice president and chief of staff at UMA - Ben Roberts, claimed that he was an intern with the Trump organization.
On the other hand, Ronald Schnackenberg, the former sales manager at Trump University, stated that based upon the techniques that were taught by the Trump University, not a single consumer who paid for the institution's seminar program went on to successfully invest in real estate, Groopspeak reported.
