Income Share Agreement (ISA) Questions

Important Note: The FAQs below explains certain tuition and ISA features and terms, but do not override any terms in the Income Share Agreement (ISA) itself. Students should read their enrollment agreement and ISA contract(s) carefully to understand their terms.

An ISA is a way to pay your Masai School tuition. A Masai School ISA is a contract under which you agree to pay 15% of your post-Masai School salary for 36 months, but only once you're making more than the ISA threshold salary level (depending on the program you chose). The ISA is capped at a maximum repayment of ₹ 3 Lakhs (Including 18% GST), so you won’t pay more than ₹ 3 Lakhs under any circumstances.

This is our way of investing in you. We select students we believe will be successful, and cover your tuition until you're in a financial position to pay us back.

Masai School tuition is ₹ 3 Lakhs (Including 18% GST). If you do not land a high paying job, you do not pay Masai School anything. If you land a high-paying job, the most you will pay is ₹ 3 Lakhs (Including 18% GST). ‍ After you reach the payment cap or complete your 36 monthly payment, you are free of obligation under the ISA. Below is a chart illustrating the total amount you will pay under the ISA payment option in various earning scenarios.

In the rare case that you don't get a job of Rs. 5 LPA (r-program) and 8 LPA (i-program), your payment will not start. Your payment will only start if you get a job > 5LPA (r-program) or 8LPA (i-program) within 1 year of completing the course.

Application Questions

This test helps us determine if Masai School is the right choice for you. The MSAT (Masai School Admission Test), measures verbal, quantitative, and spatial reasoning. A full description is below.

We are currently piloting this entrance test with our 2021 r-program courses and will roll out to our i-Program in the coming months.

MSAT (Masai School Admission Test) is an aptitude test that measures an individual's ability to solve problems, digest and apply information, learn new skills, and think critically. Individuals with high aptitude are more likely to be quick learners and high performers than individuals with low aptitude.

Masai programs cover a lot of ground in a short period of time. While we follow the principle of mastery- based progression, it’s important that students are able to learn and apply what we are covering to be successful.

We use the results from the MSAT to project how likely a student is to succeed in learning and applying those concepts.

For r-program, following are the tests -
1. Aptitude (20 minutes duration)
2. Computer Literacy Test (5 minutes duration)
3. Typing Speed Test (1 minute duration)
4. Attention to detail test (2 minute duration)
