Two research questions and two hypotheses guided the study.

A structured questionnaire was used for data collection. Mean and standard deviation were used to analyze data related to research questions, while t-test statistics was used in testing the two null hypotheses of the study. The study revealed that the identified strategies are used by lecturers in teaching entrepreneurship education, and that majority of these strategies are equally effective in developing entrepreneurial skills among students in tertiary institutions. The two null hypotheses of no significant difference were retained at 0.05 level of significance which therefore indicates that the opinion of male and female business educators do not differ significantly on the strategies of teaching entrepreneurship and the efficacy of the strategies in developing entrepreneurial skills among students in tertiary institutions in Kwara State, Nigeria. It was recommended among others that entrepreneurship lecturers should continue to adopt the identified strategies in the teaching and learning of entrepreneurship education, since they are highly effective in inculcating entrepreneurial skills among students in tertiary institutions in Kwara State, and also that curriculum planners should build in dynamic entrepreneurship skills into the curricular at all fields of study so as to make the curricula at every level of education be geared towards the acquisition of entrepreneurial skills for self-reliance.
