So, you want to rake in the cash and you also want to be in higher education? Yes, it is possible. Just make sure that you run a medical school or a dermatology lab. If you like the central office then either shoot for being chancellor or better yet CFO. These positions could net you as much as $5,000,000 per year. It would take about two long careers for most theology/humanities professors to earn this kind of cash. Thank goodness there is more to life than money.
