Following a lawsuit filed a few months ago by a few unhappy students, Trump University, which offers real estate and entrepreneur courses, now faces an investigation by the New York Attorney General.

Trump University is one of several for-profit schools in the state under investigation, prompted by dozens of complaints from former students.

A few months ago a group of California students filed a lawsuit against the program, in which real estate mogul Donald Trump is the chairman of, alleging that the school was "like an infomercial" that uses the Trump name to attract students but doesn't deliver on its promises of success in real estate.

Trump University, which offers courses in real estate, asset management, and entrepreneurship, is a non-accredited program and does not offer degrees or college credits. It changed its name to the Trump Entrepreneur Initiative last year after the New York State Education Department said it could no longer use the term “university” without its approval.

About 11,000 students in Canada and the United States have taken paid courses through the program.
