This study assessed the utilization of ICT resources in teaching among business educators in tertiary institutions in south Nigeria. Two research questions and two null hypotheses guided the study. Descriptive survey research design was adopted for the study. The population and sample for the study comprised all 240 business educators in colleges of education and universities in south Nigeria. A 28-item structured questionnaire was used as instrument for data collection. Copies of the instrument were administered on 240 business educators and 213 were returned representing 88.75 percent. Data collected were analyzed using mean and standard deviation for the research questions. The null hypotheses were tested at 0.05 level of significance using inferential statistics of t-test. The findings revealed that the few available ICT resources are rarely utilized in the teaching of business education, ICT resources utilization has high influence on teaching and that business educators encounter several problems such as irregular power supply in the utilization of ICT resources. It was recommended among other things, that government and stakeholders in education should make adequate budgetary allocation for the provision of ICT resources and the identified barriers that stand against effective utilization of ICT should be tackled and removed to better equip products of tertiary institutions to fit into various workplaces.
