One of the wholly-owned subsidiaries of Apollo Group, Inc. ( APOL ), University of Phoenix, recently collaborated with Cleantech Open to introduce a new internship program. The program will allow its students and alumni to work with the officials of Cleantech Open and learn about the entrepreneurial process.

Cleantech Open is a not for profit organization that operates the largest Cleantech accelerator in the world. With a wide network of volunteers and sponsors, Cleantech Open works with both public and private sector companies to address energy, environmental and economic challenges.

Education companies like Apollo and Capella Education Company ( CPLA ) have been witnessing volatile enrollment growth in the past few quarters due to the current economic scenario.
