This study was conducted to determine the 2000 annual earnings of hospitality financial management educators. Fifty-five percent of AHFME's members affiliated with educational institutions responded. Annual base salaries ranged from $28,000 to $125,000. The lowest-paid member is an assistant professor while the highest-paid member is a full professor. Most respondents supplement their base salaries by teaching during summer school and doing consulting work. The total annual earnings of members ranged from $38,000 to $200,000. Hospitality financial management educators appear to be more highly compensated than hospitality industry financial executives.
