Fatema Basrai '18

Assistant Director of Innovate Health Yale at Yale University

How did UTSA best prepare you for your future career?

“I was born in India and raised in rural Oklahoma. I came to San Antonio to teach after receiving my bachelor’s. UTSA's affordable and convenient M.B.A. classes allowed me to get my M.B.A. while working full-time. Not only did I receive great business knowledge, but I was able to meet and learn alongside other talented, hardworking individuals. UTSA's emphasis on innovation and entrepreneurship helped me build tangible skills that I now use in my role as assistant director of Innovate Health Yale, a program in public health and social entrepreneurship at Yale University. I was also named to the Forbes 30 Under 30 in Education list for 2018 and am dedicated to ensuring educational equity for students globally.”
