This is great information about salary expectations. Thank you for sharing


How about salaries on wallstreet? A new Financial MBA still commands 100 to 150 K with perks.

One of my buddies is always talking about your blog at work – finally came and checked it out today, nice work! I’m subscribing to your rss feed – keep on posting!

What is the difference between "Instructors" and "New Doctorates"? Also, why to "instructors" get paid so much less? What does ABD stand for?

Instructors are usually graduate students, part-time non-PhD faculty, or full-time non-PhD faculty. New doctorates are new hires that have recently graduated with their PhD and are likely teaching and researching at a business school. Instructors are paid less because they usually lack the doctoral level education, therefore; they do not contribute to research activities at the school. ABD stands for "all but dissertation." This means that a student went all the way through (or mostly) a PhD program and did not finish or pass their dissertation portion. Their research may have been flawed or the committee turned down their paper/findings.

Great blog, congratulations. I suggest you a new research to check how easy for new doctorates is to get a job. I think the salaries you found are nice, but maybe only a few new doctorates get those jobs.
Thanks for sharing the results.
