This research focused on assessing the impact of TETFund on management of business teacher education in Colleges Education in the South East Zone of Nigeria. Two research questions were generated and two hypotheses were formulated to guide the study. The study adopted a survey research design. The population of the study comprised one hundred and thirty two (132) lecturers from the seven federal and state owned colleges of education in the South East zone. The whole population was studied because it is manageable. A four-point scale questionnaire was developed by the researcher to enable her collect data for the study. One hundred and thirty two (132) copies of the instrument were printed after validation and subsequently distributed to the one hundred and thirty two (132) respondents used for the study. All the one hundred and thirty two (132) were personally administered to the respondents, completed, retrieved by hand and were used in the analysis. The items with regards to the research questions were analyzed using mean and standard deviation while null hypotheses were tested at 0.05 level of significance using t-test statistics. The results showed that funding of business teacher education has improved and that there are inadequate maintenance of teaching and learning facilities. Based on the findings of the study, the researcher concluded that though TETFund has made and is still making positive impact in the funding of business teacher education yet many managers of business teacher education in colleges of education lack maintenance culture. The researchers therefore recommended among others that head of departments as resource managers should ensure proper utilization of available fund. They should have close contact with their chief executives and help access more TETFund for a better and effective implementation of business teacher education. Again they should avoid wastage and imbibe maintenance culture.
