The search for means of attaining a height in development by African countries and possibly be enlisted among the committee of developed nations of the world remains an unending task. Most African countries have therefore adopted education as a veritable instrument for influencing the anticipated development, especially in the wake of global economic trends. In compliance with these economic trends and emerging needs, emphasis is laid on Vocational Technical Education (VTE), also referred to as Technical Vocational Education and Training (TVET), within the domain of business education. This chapter examines the environment of business education and business education pedagogy in Africa. The author adopts both historical and analytical approaches and attempts a critique of business education in Africa, with corresponding strategies for improvement.
