Okoro, James

This study assessed positive impact of globalisation on entrepreneurial ventures in Nigeria. One research question and two hypotheses guided the study. The design of the study was a descriptive survey. The population which also served as the sample comprised 131 lecturers in state and federal universities that offer Business Education programme in south south Nigeria. A 29-item questionnaire was the instrument used for the study. It was subjected to face and content validity by experts in Business Education and Measurement and Evaluation. The internal consistency of the instrument was also determined using cronbach alpha. This yielded a reliability coefficient of 0.94. The research question was analysed using mean and standard deviation while z-test was used to test the hypotheses at 0.05 level of significance. The findings revealed, among others, that globalisation has provided wealth to many business operators in the country; globalisation has brought the world together as one global village leading to easy access to new concepts and globalisation has led to greater employment opportunities. It was recommended, among others, that adequate lecturers should be engaged by school authorities in Business Education department to teach various packages in information and communication technology and adequate computers should be provided by school authorities to enable Business Education students do sufficient practical work in information and communication technology before graduation.
