The global economy is changing, current jobs are disappearing due to automation and new jobs emerging everyday as a result of technological advances. The continual advances in technology are changing the way students, connect and interact.  Business education as an aspect of Technical and Vocational Education has been recognized the world over as a medium for empowering people, especially the youths, for sustainable livelihood and social-economic development. It is a programme with the capacity of delivering the knowledge, skill, and philosophy that influence the development of attitudes and behaviors likely to impact on the actualization of educational goals. It is evidenced that education also equips a person with relevant skills which would lead him to be employed or have a better performance in his chosen career. Since education is very instrumental in ensuring the attainment of a functional citizenship, it therefore follows that emphasis should be placed on modern strategies to stem and sustain the much desired development in business education. It is in seeking a solution to this problem that the writer delved through literature to determine modern strategies needed for effective instructional delivery in business education. The strategies proffered included: experiential related strategy, team related strategy and flipped related strategy. It is concluded that there is a mismatch between the training received in schools and the expectations of employers of labour while recruiting employees. The researchers recommend that on the-job training and conferences should be organized at intervals for Business Education students in order to update their knowledge on team related strategies that can allow the students to be at the centre of learning. The writers believe that these strategies if judiciously adopted will to a great extent improve the quality of business education graduates and improve their chances of being gainfully employed in the world of work.
