Institutional determinants of university CEOs' compensation - evidence from the UK
by Chew Ging Lee; Pek Kim Ng
Global Business and Economics Review (GBER), Vol. 17, No. 2, 2015

Abstract: This article examines whether CEOs of higher education institutions in the UK are rewarded for the performance of their firms. Results clearly show a link between firm performance and pay. In particular, organisation size, age, ranking, research quality, and graduate employability positively influence executive remuneration. The most important predictor of university CEOs' income is the employability of its graduates. Hence, post-university labour market outcomes are critical in attracting financial rewards.
