Masai School is a 21st-century career focussed coding school.

Masai School is on a mission to find untapped or underutilized talent and to train them for the most in-demand jobs in the world. Masai School is introducing a new model of higher education in which the school invests in the students, instead of the other way around.

Solution

Traditional higher education models are expensive and inaccessible to most students. Companies are now looking for skilled coders who come prepared with an attitude to grow their careers.

Masai helps aspiring students from engineering and non-engineering backgrounds, to take up the challenge of learning coding and finding a career path for themselves.

Masai follows the ISA (Income Sharing Agreement) model which allows for students to ‘Study now and Pay later’ the course fee of ₹2.5 lakh for Full Stack Web, Android Development courses and ₹3 lakh for Software Development Engineer course is paid by the students after they get high paying, relevant jobs.
