University of Phoenix Parent Company President Speaks to Town Hall Los Angeles

LOS ANGELES, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- 10/12/06 -- Brian Mueller, President of Apollo Group, Inc., parent company of the University of Phoenix, speaks to Town Hall Los Angeles on October 26, 2006. Mueller's address brings alternative instruction programs like online education and learning centers into focus as Californians search for education solutions.

Founded in 1973, the Apollo Group subsidiaries include the University of Phoenix, the Institute for Professional Development, the College for Financial Planning, and Western International University. The University of Phoenix has over 190 campuses and learning centers throughout North America and Europe. It has nearly 250,000 students and is the largest private university in the US. In January 2006, Mueller said, "Over the past 30 years, University of Phoenix has built a renowned brand... We are, in fact, unparalleled in the industry."

Mueller came to the Apollo Group in 1987 and became its President in January 2006. Prior to his current post, Mueller was the Chief Operating Officer. On March 23, 2006, Mueller stated, "We have the most scalable online program in the world, and we are in the process of training our entire staff to sell into the trend of more people wanting to do education online."

Event Sponsor SAGE Publications is a leading international publisher of journals, books, and electronic media for academic, educational, and professional markets. Since 1965, SAGE has helped inform and educate a global community of scholars, practitioners, researchers, and students spanning a wide range of subject areas, including business, social sciences, humanities, science, technology, and medicine.

Mueller joins Town Hall as part of its ongoing education series. Earlier this year, Town Hall convened a panel addressing confusion over California's education system: "How Does California Education Really Work?" Since 1937, Town Hall Los Angeles has been dedicated to promoting civic participation and awareness on issues of regional, national, and international significance.

All members of the media are invited to cover this event.
