UMass Amherst announces affiliation with IntelliVen

September 9, 2020

AMHERST, Mass. – The University of Massachusetts Amherst has announced a new collaboration with IntelliVen, a leading executive team development organization, to provide interactive, remote learning programs designed to raise the performance and effectiveness of leadership teams.

The collaboration represents another step in developing a robustumass portfolio of options for UMass Amherst alumni and students to continue learning beyond their college degree.

IntelliVen offers immersive programs designed to help an organization’s core leadership team tackle the unique challenges of managing a growing organization, especially in today’s turbulent markets. IntelliVen’s proprietary set of course modules enables an interactive, remote learning experience that leaders take along with their teams to unlock their true potential to perform and grow.

“IntelliVen teaches leaders, teams and organizations to set direction, achieve team alignment, implement strategy, and make the change they want to grow faster and perform better,” said Peter DiGiammarino, IntelliVen managing partner.

“Education is a journey not a destination. In fact, we view it as a lifelong journey, not something that ends when a person receives a college degree,” said John Wells, UMass Amherst senior vice provost. “That’s why partnerships like this are so important. They provide affordable, convenient access to our students and alumni interested in continuous, lifelong learning.”

Members of the university community will receive a discount on the standard price of IntelliVen’s leadership development immersion programs. More information on the programs as well as directions on how to enroll can be found on the IntelliVen Manage to Lead Immersion Program page.

About IntelliVen & Peter DiGiammarino

The Manage to Lead System evolved initially from work DiGiammarino did as a UMass Bateman Scholar in Residence in 2010. After more than 35 years of success running organizations with a blend of both advanced business and organization development competence, he coalesced into a leadership development program what he had learned to share with others. He developed and went on to teach Manage to Lead to master’s students in business and in organization development at American University, University of San Francisco and Golden Gate University. In 2018 he worked with an expert in virtual learning programs who worked with Stanford to offer the program remotely to cohorts of executives and their teams on the UMass UWW platform. Learn more at
