This study is concerned with the topic challenges of teaching and learning Business Education with new technologies in Rivers state universities. The study adopted a survey research design. The study covered Rivers State University (RSU) and Ignatius Ajuru University of Education (IAUE). The population of the study was 2, 989 and sample size was 341 using Krejcie and Morgan sampling technique. The instrument used was tagged “Challenges of Teaching and Learning Business Education with New Technologies (COTALBEWINT)”, with a five point scale of Very High Extent of Challenges (5 Points), High Extent of Challenges (4 Points), Moderate Extent of Challenges (3 Points), Low Extent of Challenges (2 Points), and Very Low Extent of Challenges (1 Point). 341 copies of questionnaire items were face-to-face administered to the respondents and 330 successfully retrieved. Arithmetic mean was used to analyse the research questions, and Standard Deviation used to find out the extent in which scores in the distribution clustered around the means. T-test was adopted as statistical tool. Mean scores of 5.0, 4.0, and 3.0 were seen as Very High Extent of Challenges(VHEC 5Points), High Extent of Challenges (HEC 4Points), Moderate Extent of Challenges (MEC 3Points), while 2.0 and 1.0 were seen as Low Extent of Challenges (LEC 2 Points) and Very Low Extent of Challenges (VLEC 1Point). The decision point was that, any calculated ground mean from 3.0 and above will be rejected and any ground mean below 3.0 will be accepted. Also, any calculated value of T-test that is greater than > the critical table value of 1.96 at 0.05 significant levels such null hypothesis (HO) will be rejected, but if the critical table value is greater than > the computed value such null hypothesis will be accepted. It was discovered that there was high extent high extent of challenges in the availability of new technologies in teaching and learning Business Education and there was also high extent of challenges in the of types of challenges of new technologies in teaching and learning Business Education in Rivers State Universities. Among other things it was recommended that Government and other concerned agencies should ensures new technologies are made available in the right quantities and qualities for the teaching and learning of Business Education and there should be adequate funding, regular training and retraining of teachers in the teaching and learning of Business Education.
