All educational settings are faced with issues, challenges and trends that are considered and improved on today and tomorrow, the improvement begin to experience issues and challenges again. This is because we are in a changing society and new trends and issues call for more commitment by stakeholders. Business education which is a hands and brains’ course that prepares graduates for fitting into the world of work, became self reliant and self employed is getting downtrodden because of issues bordering on insufficient funds and other facilities for teaching and learning. It is observed that government can no longer be solely responsible and so good community relationship is looked into to see how to attract helping hands to equip business education for effective teaching and learning. A well established relationship will provide funds for capacity building, equipment and other needed resources. It is recommended that government should admit that they can no longer be solely responsible so that the yearnings of business education departments will be appreciated, seen as genuine and supported.

Keywords: Establishing, sustaining, community relationship, issues, challenges and business education.
