This study was carried out to find out to what extent business educators in tertiary institutions in south east zone of Nigeria utilize ICT facilities in classroom instruction. The descriptive survey research design was used for the study. Four research questions and four null hypotheses tested at 0.05 level of significance guided the study. A total of 104 practicing business educators selected from the universities and colleges of education were used for the study. The data collection instrument was a 50-item questionnaire that was structured on a five point Likert type rating scale. With the use of Pearson Product Moment Correlation the reliability co-efficient was calculated to be 0.88, which was considered adequate for the study. The data was analyzed using mean for the four research questions, while the t- test was used for testing the null hypotheses at 0.05 level of significance. The study revealed that business educators in south east zone of Nigeria utilized all the ICT facilities identified for the study to a small extent in classroom instructions. It was recommended, among others that open and distant education should be judiciously encouraged at this level of the educational system, Business education programmes are challenged to update their ICT laboratories and business educators should employ the necessary technical skills which would eventually lead to effective utilization of ICT facilities for classroom instruction.
