This study uses survey research to determine the 2019 annual earnings of hospitality financial management educators. Forty percent of iAHFME members affiliated with educational institutions responded. Survey results show that for 2019, annual base salaries of iAHFME members ranged from $72,000 to $200,000. The lowest-paid member was an assistant professor and the highest-paid member, 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 $82,000 to $250,000. Survey results also show that hospitality financial management educators appear to be more highly compensated than the average college professor and their counterparts in the lodging industry.
