PHOENIX -- August 6, 2014

The School of Advanced Studies at University of Phoenix, a subsidiary of
Apollo Education Group, Inc. (Nasdaq: APOL), today announced that its Journal
of Leadership Studies has received the prestigious APEX Award for Publishing
in the category of Magazine, Journal and Tabloid Design and Layout. This is
the sixth time the University’s Journal has been recognized with an APEX

The Journal of Leadership Studies is a quarterly academic journal produced by
Wiley, providing opportunities for researchers to convey recent findings and
for practitioners to discuss issues at the forefront of leadership. It
synthesizes the best that theory has to offer with the real-world practical
experience of tested leaders to impact organizational decision making.

“The Journal of Leadership Studies strives to provide a unique look at
leadership theory and practice to promote discussions about how emerging
understanding of leadership can improve practice in the field,” said Jeremy
Moreland, Ph.D., editor-in-chief for the journal and academic dean for
University of Phoenix® School of Advanced Studies. “The School is proud of the
work that is featured in the publication and is honored to have been selected
to receive the prestigious APEX Award.”

The Journal of Leadership Studies provides multiple perspectives on leadership
throughout organizations, fostering dialogue that goes beyond
industry-specific contexts, and explores leadership's role in improving
organizational practices and, ultimately, human relations. Published material
in the Journal of Leadership Studies includes research-based and theoretical
articles that address leadership in various social, cultural and
organizational contexts.

“This publication provides a platform for idea and theory sharing among
practitioners and scholars as well as organizational leaders looking to
further their skills and competence,” said Moreland. “Insights into
businesses, non-profit organizations, government entities, educational
institutions and the healthcare industry provide contributions making the
publication a robust and critical tool.”
