Entrepreneurship education is very essential for preparing students to be job creators, job developers, efficient entrepreneurial managers and full fledged     self-reliant citizens. The study identified effective strategies for teaching entrepreneurship education in tertiary institutions in Anambra State. Three research questions guided the study and three null hypotheses were tested at 0.05 level of significance. Descriptive survey design was used for the study. The population of the study consisted of 45 business educators. No sampling was made since the population was manageable. A structured questionnaire was used for data collection. The instrument was validated by two experts. The reliability of the instrument was established using pilot test outside the population area. Data collected were analysed using Cronbach alpha reliability co-efficient which yielded co-efficient of 0.85. Data related to research questions were analysed using mean ratings while t-test was used to test the hypotheses. Findings revealed that business plan, simulation and computer-assisted instruction are effective strategies for teaching entrepreneurship education in tertiary institutions. Based on the findings, it was recommended among others that business educators and other entrepreneurship educators should make appropriate use of effective strategies during lesson instruction so as to equip students with the right skills required for entrepreneurship business.
