Business education by definition so an educational process or content which has its primary aims as the preparation of people for roles in business enterprise either as an entrepreneur/employer or employee.

Although, the method employed could be seen as informal and practical in the traditional education settings.

Since business education aims at the development and production of manpower with the require knowledge, skills and attitude for harnessing other resources and bringing them into co-operative relationship for yielding goods and services to Business Subjects Teachers. It should be well supported totally and be free from challenges that will or may affect the teaching of the subject.

In business subjects, students will be reminded what acceptable business practices are, what is ethical in a society, what is desirable and above all, how social relationships  should be regulated not only for business success but also for healthy co-existence among the people in the society. It is clear that business education subjects will be of immense help to business men and women in search of knowledge which will help them carry on their business effectively with minimum capital.

Business education curriculum can be divided into the following subjects, advanced level Business Studies, Principles of Accounts, Certificate Level Commerce, Word Processing, Business Fundamental and Business Communication.

How can teachers of business studies develop their professional expertise required of them in the business pedagogy expertise required of them in the business pedagogy?

How can ideas, concepts about good practical be shared among other teacher and students?
