Surprising virtually no one: Emory’s James W. Wagner gets the most bank in Georgia with $1,200,633 in total compensation. That’s 27th for private schools country-wide and tops overall in Georgia.
Edward L. Schraeder Jr. of Brenau was second, taking home $539,154.
While President Wagner needs a lot of piggy banks, he makes a pittance in comparison to Robert J. Zimmer of the University of Chicago. He earns $3,358,723 a year.
