This study uses survey research to determine the 2014 annual earnings of hospitality financial management educators. Forty-three percent of iAHFME members affiliated with educational institutions responded. Survey results show that for 2014, annual base salaries of iAHFME members ranged from $70,000 to $258,000. The lowest-paid member was an assistant professor and the highest-paid member was a full professor. Many respondents supplemented their base salaries by teaching during summer school or consulting or both. The total annual earnings of iAHFME members ranged from $71,000 to $270,000. Survey results also show that hospitality financial management educators appear to be more highly compensated than the average college professor than their counterparts in the lodging industry.
