While the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business International (AACSB) conducts an annual survey of business school faculty and administrative salaries, the data do not include salary figures for logistics (and related areas such as transportation and supply chain management) faculty. Since the growth in number of logistics faculty positions has continued to exceed the output of doctoral programs in the field for more than a decade, it is logical to assume that logistics faculty salaries, at all levels, are increasing. However, without factual data, what salary should a new logistics Ph.D. expect, and what should an administrator budget for a logistics faculty position? In order to provide such factual data, the authors developed an electronic salary survey and distributed it to 236 faculty at colleges and universities in the United States. It is the intent of the authors to conduct the salary survey annually, and report the results in the Journal of Transportation Management.
