This study was conducted to determine the 2003 annual earnings of hospitality financial management educators. Fifty-seven percent of AHFME’s members affiliated with educational institutions responded. Annual base salaries ranged from $33,000 to $172,000. The lowest-paid member is an instructor while the highest-paid member is a full professor. Most respondents supplement their base salaries by both teaching during summer school and consulting. The total annual earnings of members ranged from $33,000 to $252,000. Hospitality financial management educators appear to be more highly compensated than hospitality industry financial executives.
