This study uses survey research to determine the 2020 annual earnings of hospitality financial man- agement educators. Forty-four percent of iAHFME members affiliated with educational institutions responded. Survey results show that for 2020, annual base salaries of iAHFME members ranged from $63,000 to $200,000. The lowest-paid member was an assistant professor and the highest-paid mem- ber, 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 $76,000 to $245,000. 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.
