But then if College Presidents are overpaid why not CEOs
Reader comment on: Overpaid College Presidents
Submitted by Lyle (United States), May 13, 2013 13:40
A college president job is basically to herd the cats that make up the faculty. They can't be fired in general so they do their own thing, he has to cajole the faculty to go in his direction. A corporate CEO at least can fire folks that don't want to go in his way. Further a college president needs to raise money like a politician as well. So which is the harder job?
