In Nigeria, excess labor is common everywhere which results in complete unemployment of some polytechnic graduates. This is the reason for entrepreneurial education in the polytechnic of Nigeria. Of note is that entrepreneurship education in the polytechnic has not adequately addressed job creation and infrastructural development due to poor teaching methods, inadequate laboratory equipment, and untrained facilitators. This paper examined methods used in delivering entrepreneurship education and skills to the student of Statistics. It aims to assess learning methods used in delivering entrepreneurship education to the student of statistics. Questionnaire as a data collection instrument was used. The entire 289 students in the Department of Statistics were involved in the study. Average weighted response and chi-square were the statistical tools used to analyze the data collected with the aid of the SPSS package. It was discovered that handout/manual was frequently used in an entrepreneurship class. To this end, entrepreneurship education should involve exhibitions, workshops, and seminars
