The Nigerian educational system in general and the Business Education Programme in particular require realistic evaluation system that can bridge the gap between theory and practice. This will go a long way in showcasing the correlation between skills and competency displayed by graduates of business education and the certificate they claim to parade looking for white-collar jobs in the world of competition. Hence, a valid evaluation system should form the basis and true worth of educational outcomes upon which sensitive and viable decisions can be made. Therefore, business education graduates should as a matter of urgent importance be able to put to practice the skills professed by
their certificates. Consequent upon this, the major challenge is that scholars in the area of business education are still in serious need of an acceptable technique, procedure and means of measurement for high quality business education graduates that should turn things around in the world of business
education. However, the paper explains evaluation, as it relates to business education, the purpose of evaluation, areas requiring evaluation in business education, types of evaluation, techniques of evaluation, salient principles of evaluation of business education programme, criteria for evaluation, obstacles to effective evaluation, challenges of business education in Nigeria, and chances of business education in Nigeria. It further recommended among others that evaluation should be based on the behavioural outcome or goal of the programme and should be consistent.

Keywords: Evaluation, Business Education, Purpose of Evaluation, Techniques of Evaluation, Principles of Evaluation.
