The IMPM is the most authentically international masters program you will find. It creates many perspectives on management and business as it moves between different countries and business schools. The program is based on five 10-day modules in the UK, Canada, India, China and Brazil, thus offering a major experience of three of the four BRIC countries.
I'd come home from school, finish my projects and practice 8-12 hours a day every day my first 4-5 years. When I say practice, I don't mean casually. I literally sat down, timed myself, and made goals to create or perfect X amount of moves. I would almost never meet those goals.
When you aim for something, you'll either achieve it or land just short - so aim for the impossible.
Just to get a Sybil down to where it was second nature probably took me almost a year. As you begin to learn the cuts your fingers begin to get used to some of the finger positions that are often used. Where it might take you a year to get a Sybil down if you already know that it will be that much easier to learn a Madonna cut. So I guess as you learn things new moves will become easier to learn.
