CHAPTER ONE
INTRODUCTION
1.1 BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY
Business education is currently making waves in the Nigerian education system most especially in the secondary and tertiary institution. This is because business education is recognized by the state and federal government in all levels of education in Nigeria (National Policy on Education, 2004). Business education takes its bearing right from the outside world to the classroom, starting with the idea of apprentice seeking to learn a skill from his/her master; this was what the early stage business education was known for. The story is now different as business education skills are now available in books with tutors passing the ideas to students; thus, bringing business education to the formal setting (Popham, 1975).
For business education to strive it must be such that theory is matched with practical.
Just like other professional courses like medicine, engineering, etc. business education gained popularity as a professional course during the post World War II, as there was a boost in trade and investment during this period (Geiger, 2004). Through this, business education became a great contributor to the wealth of the country, even as it aid to promote human resources in the country. Business education includes business administration, book keeping, business teaching, marketing, etc; with the sole aim of making entrepreneurs, managers and employees who know the rudiments of maintaining good internal and external relationship in a working environment (Erickson, 2002). This is what is required in the market as individuals are much interested in those who have the skills to meet their demands, not just any kind of skills but professional skills.
Business education has grown pass the classroom work to what is required in the outside work with some professional skills like expertise gotten through training and self concept (Arthur, 1995; Freidson, 1985, 1994; Haywood-Farmer & Stuart, 1990).
There is a wake-up call to resuscitate business education in Nigeria by making it professional, as this will help revive the economy; though as it stands, business education is not treated as a professional course like medicine, engineering and the likes. That is why this study is meant to examine the impediments and solutions to the professionalism of business education.
1.2 STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEM
Business education in Nigeria most times is usually relegated to the background because some people feel there is no point going to school to study it. Some have the notion that it is a waste of time and money to study business education and so they look down on the discipline being referred to as a professional course.
In addition, Nigerians have this notion of some popular courses being referred to as professional courses and  another problem, as Nigerian youths are not ready to do strenuous jobs; they rather want the kind of job where they wear suits to the office.
Conclusively, some people have the wrong notion about professionalism in business education and this has slowed the pace of its professionalism success in the society.
1.3 OBJECTIVES OF THE STUDY

Other specific objectives include:

So there was a delay with the project due to the covid19 pandemic.
