AbstractBusiness education has come a long way, from its roots in vocational education; and is now becoming an essential part of the school curriculum. As its significance continues to be recognised, business education needs to respond to dynamic changes and to be future-oriented. The old image of business education with the primary aims of producing clerks and secretaries is being replaced by a higher mission of preparing students who are able to pursue further studies in tertiary institutions or become business professionals in the future. To achieve this goal, much needs to be done. A good and balanced business curriculum will equip students to function as viable members of tomorrow’s society. As its significance continues to be recognised, business education needs to respond to dynamic changes and to be future-oriented; business subjects need to be better integrated; business teachers need to be equipped with up-to-date knowledge of the business world and different teaching methods, through continuous development in teacher training and research. Furthermore, the introduction of entrepreneurship education is inevitable (Cheung & Chan, 2011).
