This study was conducted to determine the 2008 annual earnings of hospitality financial management educators. Forty-seven percent of AHFME’s members affiliated with educational institutions responded. Annual base salaries ranged from $60,000 to $210,000. The lowest paid member is an assistant professor while the highest paid member is a full professor. Many respondents supplement their base salaries by both teaching during summer school and consulting. The total annual earnings of members ranged from $63,000 to $416,000. Hospitality financial management educators appear to be more highly compensated than the average college professor.
