Aside from your own grades or performance, the amount of research your professor has done could have an effect on your future salary. According to a study by Russell Crook, assistant professor of management in the College of Business Administration at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, scholarly research conducted by business professors seems to have an impact on the salaries of their students after graduation.

Crook found that scholarly research at business schools appears to add as much as $24,000 a year, or 21 percent, to the MBA students' future salaries.
