Pune, November 10, 2021: Every year, over 15 lakh engineer students graduate but only a small percentage possess the desired skills to be employable. Masai School’s Students are often constrained to take up jobs that are below their technical qualifications or are unrelated to their education or degree. The mismatch between the curriculum at universities and the industry requirements is a primary factor for this circumstance. However, in today’s changing times, employers are laying greater emphasis on skills versus educational backgrounds. The story of Falak Thacker, from being a college dropout to a successful software engineer is a classic example of how having the right skills outweighs professional
Important Announcement – EasyShiksha has now started Online Internship Program “Ab India Sikhega Ghar Se”
Falak comes from a humble family in Pune, Maharashtra. Her journey started during her 1 st year of the BCA degree program. She traveled 1.5 hours each day only to spend 3 hours in a classroom where she felt she learned nothing different from what could be learned staying at home. Most of her days were spent in the college canteen, waiting for the next class to begin. It was at this stage that she decided to leave college altogether and look for options that would help her develop the skills for a successful career. She came across an advertisement for Masai School and decided to sit for the entrance test, learning about its career-focused training and the Income Sharing Agreement model.
After passing the test, Falak made the decision to drop out of college to give her full focus at Masai School.
The Income-Sharing Agreement (ISA) at Masai School enables students to enroll in the coding programs without having to pay any upfront tuition fee. Masai School follows a military-style 9–9–6 training model that is challenging and keeps the students engaged and motivated throughout the program.
Expressing her gratitude, Falak Thacker said, “My experience at Masai School was wonderful. I’m extremely grateful to Masai School, specifically the commitment of all my teachers and the support staff to ensure that I succeed by hand-holding me all the way through. I gained all the knowledge and the values to build strong skills and professional engineer character. Masai pushed me out of my comfort zone, transforming me into a more disciplined and self-aware person. The depth, pattern, and intensity of teaching that is followed at Masai School are unmatched in India. Today, I have begun my journey as a Software Developer at a startup in Bangalore and I look forward to my journey ahead.”
Prateek Shukla, CEO & Co-founder, Masai School said, “Learning a new skill requires personal commitment and determination. Today, companies who are hiring are giving equal or in some cases more weightage to aspirants having relevant job skills, versus a plain engineer educational degree. The need for constant skilling and upskilling is prevalent in the industry. There are several courses available to help students do so, however, there exists a huge fee structure which many can’t afford. To solve this challenge, Masai School follows the Income-Sharing Agreement (ISA)-based education model. The ISA at Masai School enables students to enroll in the coding programs without having to pay any upfront
tuition fee. Only after they find a job that pays them above Rs. 5 LPA, would Masai activate monthly ISA payments are capped at 15 percent of monthly income for a maximum of 36 months. We strongly believe that any aspiring software developer should be able to choose their careers over having to compromise upon them.”

The company has enabled student placements with more than 700 of its hiring partners which include the likes of top tech and product engineer companies such as NoBroker, ShareChat, Paytm, Samsung, Airmeet, Meesho, among many others.
