Where is Sensei School located?
All of our classes, workshops and meetings take place entirely online, although we do schedule some meet-ups in larger cities.
Students do not work out of our offices.
The course hours don't work for me. Can I attend on my own time?
No. The most important aspects of Sensei School happen in small, interactive groups, and require full attendance for all hours of the class. The lectures alone are not what makes Sensei School great.
What if I can't pay for Sensei School up-front?
Sensei School students don't pay anything up-front. Instead they pay for Sensei School using an income share agreement, or ISA.
Under an ISA you agree to pay 14% of your post-Sensei School pre-tax income for three years, only when you're making more than $60k per year.
This is our way of investing in you. We select students we believe will be successful, and cover the costs of your education until you're in a financial position to pay us back.
Here is an article from the Economist on the topic of ISA.
How much will I pay total?
The income share agreement (ISA) is tied to your income, so how much you pay will vary based on how much you're earning. Like many investors, Sensei School takes a portfolio approach, knowing that some students will pay more for their education and others will pay less. This investment approach is how we can make the program financially accessible to everyone.
How do you verify my income? Do I have to take the first job I'm offered?
As a part of the income share agreement process we'll receive access to view your income taxes, which we use to verify your income. We don't control where you work. If you file jointly with a spouse or have other income (such as from investments, inheritance, etc.), we don't include those as your earned income.
Does Sensei School help me get a job?
We do help you get prepared in several ways and we do have a full team dedicated to career development. They help you prepare, practice interviews, polish your profile and even help you in salary negotiations. We will also introduce you to potential employers who can offer you an internship or entry level positions. At the end of the day - you're the one who needs to apply, interview, and land the job.
What are the interest rates for the income share agreement?
There are none.
Is the income on an income share agreement calculated before or after taxes?
You'll pay a percentage of your gross income (before taxes, excluding investments, inheritance).
