The objective of the study was to ascertain the extent of vocationalization, of business education in universities in South East zone of Nigeria where lecture method dominated lesson delivery. Students had become more passive and engaged in lots of endless hard work. It could hardly be easy to state the differences between business education practices and other education deliveries in this study, which is a descriptive survey, the researchers, had to randomly select 240 final year students from four of the universities in the zone. A 30-item structured questionnaire, validated and reliable, was distributed and analyzes for the study. Findings indicated students dissatisfaction with level of skills taught and absence of interactive relationship practices at classes, lack of study-driven relationships models and poor use of reflective and contextual approaches. Computer based material were insufficient, time for studies was not enough and the restructuring of the curriculum to reflect a more effective teaching method than the lecture method. More relationships and more use of reflections, models and contexts in teaching.
