The study sought to evaluate the Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) competencies required by Business Education lecturers in Colleges of Education in the South East of Nigeria. The population of the study comprised of 53 lecturers in the five selected Colleges of Education in the South East zone of Nigeria. The instrument for data collection was a structured questionnaire. The data collected were analysed using mean and standard deviation for research questions while the hypotheses were tested at 0.05 level of significance using t-test. The findings of the study showed that Business Education lecturers highly require ICT competencies like Microsoft word, internet, power point, spreadsheet and Database amongst others.
