Two research questions were raised and two null hypotheses were formulated for the study. The researchers adopted a survey research design for the study. The population for the study comprised of 145 business educators in colleges of education in South East Nigeria. There was no sample as the population size was considered manageable for the study. Data for the study was gathered using a structured questionnaire captioned “Challenges of Business Education Teacher Preparation in the E-World Questionnaire (CBETPE-WD). Mean and standard deviation were used for data analysis while the hypotheses were tested using z test at 0.05 level of significance. The findings revealed among others that there were lacks of access to resources, insufficient ICT resources, problem of lack of connectivity, lack of collaboration with expert, unconducive learning environment as students' related challenges.
