The study determined business education students‟ rating of the teaching of information and communication technology skills in tertiary institutions in South East Nigeria. A total of 350 (44%) out of 791 students in the population were selected through simple random sampling from federal, state and private universities and colleges of education in south east Nigeria. Five research questions guided the study while three hypotheses were tested at 0.05 level of significance. A researcher developed instrument duly validated by experts was used for data collection. With the use of Spearman Rank Difference Correlation, the reliability co-efficient was calculated to be 0.82, which was considered adequate for the study. Mean was used to answer the research questions while t-test statistics, ANOVA and Least Significant Difference (LSD) statistical tools were used to test the hypotheses. The study found that word processing and electronic spreadsheet skills are skills rated well taught while internet skills, desktop publishing skills and PowerPoint presentation skills were rated poorly taught. The result of the null hypotheses indicated a significant difference in the mean response of students. It was recommended that business education students should be taught ICT skills such as internet, desktop publishing and PowerPoint presentation skills as they are in the curriculum so as to make the graduates of the programme fit into the job market and also be self-employed as entrepreneurs after graduation.
