dc.description.abstractOne of the expected utilitarian values of education is the development of competencies for effective business practice after school. This article presents findings of a study on the effect of education on Business Skills Cognition among indigenous microscale business owners in Kenya. Data were collected from 208 respondents using an interview schedule, observation schedule and checklist. Business Skills Cognition as the dependent quantitative variable was measured using five broad dimensions of business practice to yield a continuum of scores ranging from a minimum of 45 to a maximum of 265 points. Results from chi-square, and One Way Analysis of Variance showed that the association between education levels, and Business Skills Cognition was positive and significant. The article discusses the implication of these findings for education delivery and training for enterprise development in Kenya and any other society that is keen on the utilitarian values of education.en_US
