The study assessed the quality imperatives of business education programme among tertiary institutions in Delta State. Four research questions were raised and a null hypothesis was formulated for the study. The researcher adopted a survey research design for the study and the
population of the study consisted of 53 business education lecturers in four tertiary institutions in Delta State, where business education programme is run. Since the population is manageable, the entire population was used as the sample size. The researcher developed a 16-item five-point likert scale instrument for the study titled “Assessing Quality Imperatives for Business Education Programme Questionnaire (AQIBEPQ)”. The descriptive statistical tool of mean was used to answer
the research questions while the t-test was used for the null hypothesis. The findings revealed that the quality imperatives (moral imperatives, professional imperatives, competitive imperatives, and accountability imperatives) of business education programme among tertiary institutions in Delta State are accepted. Amongst others, it was recommended that business educators should promote the enhancement of academic potential within them in tertiary institutions and encourage high quality teaching.
