Pay by Experience Level for Business Teacher, Postsecondary

Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.

For Postsecondary Business Teachers, level of experience appears to be a somewhat less important part of the salary calculation — more experience does not correlate to noticeably higher pay. Respondents with less than five years' experience take home $41K on average. In contrast, those who have been around for five to 10 years earn a noticeably higher average of $45K. Postsecondary Business Teachers who work for 10 to 20 years in their occupation tend to earn about $49K. In the end, more experience does seem to mean larger paychecks; seasoned Postsecondary Business Teachers with more than 20 years of experience earn a predictably higher median salary of $53K.
