The First Step Toward A New Future

Jay Achenbach founded Allied Business Schools, Inc. in 1992 in a small office suite in Laguna Hills, California with the goal of becoming the #1 real estate training school in California. What began as a small, family-run real estate school has grown to become the standard in online vocational education. Allied is proud to employ a team of dedicated staff members and faculty to support our current students and alumni. With over one million enrollments since our founding, Allied Schools has blossomed to two thriving divisions – Allied Real Estate Schools and Allied Professional Healthcare School.

In 2004, George Achenbach became Allied’s Chief Executive Officer. During his tenure, Mr. Achenbach has led Allied to new heights, expanding its real estate offerings to multiple states across the country and expanding its medical programs to include in-demand career training.

“Our family has always been passionate about education, and providing our students with the skills necessary to be able to provide for themselves and their families. It is incredibly rewarding to hear the success stories of our students who have called to let us know how they have been able provide for their families as a result of their education received at Allied. We have an incredibly dedicated staff who are passionate about providing our students the best service possible. Our goal at Allied is to bring a personal touch to distance education by giving individual attention and care to each student who entrusts us with their education.”
