The study ascertained the adoption of creative fund generation strategies in business education for students’ skill acquisition and capacity building. Two research questions and two null hypotheses guided the study. The study adopted  descriptive survey design. A population of 107 business education lecturers in tertiary institutions in Anambra State was studied without sampling. Structured questionnaire containing 20 items, which were face and content validated by three experts in the field of education was used to collect data for the study. The reliability of the instrument was established using trial-testing and data collected were calculated using Cronbach Alpha formula which yielded correlation co-efficient of.79 and .88 were obtained for clusters B1 to B2 respectively with an overall value of .84.Data collected were analyzed using mean, standard deviation and t-test. The findings of the study showed that respondents disagreed that business education-.industry partnership and business enterprises are adopted as creative fund generation strategies in business education for students’ skill acquisition and capacity building. Ownership of Institution was not a significant factor on respondents’ mean ratings on the adoption of business education-industry partnership as well as business enterprises as creative fund generation strategies in business education. The researcher concluded that business education-industry partnership, and business enterprises are not adopted as creative fund generation strategies in business education for students’ skill acquisition and capacity building in tertiary institutions in Anambra State. It was recommended among others that Management of business education programmes in tertiary institutions in Anambra State should adopt and effectively implement well-articulated business education-industry partnership strategy to ensure that the actual funding needs of the programme are addressed. This will help in the provision of modern teaching resources needed for effective training students in skill acquisition and capacity building.
