Much research has been published related to compensation in academic fields such as finance, accounting and economics; however, little attention has been paid to Management Information Systems (MIS). Conspicuously absent from the literature are in-depth studies of faculty compensation and its relationship to research productivity for MIS faculty. This study examines compensation, rank, and publication data collected from the Association for Information Systems (AIS) 2003-2004, 2004-2005 and 2005-2006 MIS Salary Surveys. MIS faculty who were newly employed or changed positions filled out the online survey at the AIS Web site on a self-selected basis. The relationships between compensation and its possible determinants such as research productivity and institutional teaching load are reported as well as analyzed. We find that compensation is significantly correlated with professors’ profiles as well as with the school profile at which the professor received a job offer.
