Alexandra had the original idea for Double Masters after completing her MBA and receiving her Project Management Professional (PMP)® certification. She realized that although there were great learning materials available to assist project managers in achieving the PMP certification, there was little focus on how to best apply this knowledge to the real world.
Through her experience as a project manager in various roles at software companies in the Boston area, she understood the value of experience and how it allowed her to better leverage her PMP. For many new PMPs, however, they have limited experience in applying their credential to their career. Furthermore, many project managers, with or without the PMP, simply don’t know how to apply the standard to practice. The best way, in her opinion, to demonstrate the relationship between standards and practice is through a simulation, and thus the company was formed.
Alexandra holds several academic degrees, including a MA in French Translation, MBA, and the PMP certification.
