The Internet has become an essential component of students’ everyday life throughout the world. It has revolutionalized the way students communicate, interact and socialize. Use of the Internet can have positive or negative influence on students’ overall development. The need to ensure effective use of the Internet by university students necessitated this study to determine its contributions to the social development of university business education undergraduates in Anambra State. One research question guided the study and two null hypotheses were tested at 0.05 level of significance. Survey research design was used. Population was 647 university business education undergraduates in Anambra State of the 2015/2016 academic session. Purposive sampling technique was used to draw a sample size of 156 (63 male and 93 female students) for the study. Instrument for data collection was a 5–point rating scale questionnaire which was duly validated by three experts. The internal consistency of the instrument was determined using Cronbach Alpha. Data were analyzed using the arithmetic mean and standard deviation to answer the research question and determine the closeness of respondents’ means while z-test and ANOVA were used to test the null hypotheses at 0.05level of significance. Findings revealed that the respondents strongly agreed that the Internet contributes to their social development. It was also found that Gender and institution ownership did not significantly affect the respondents’ mean ratings on the contributions of the Internet to their social development. Based on the findings, it was concluded that the Internet is a very helpful tool that facilitates students’ social development. It was recommended among others that parents should monitor their children to see what they do with their time while business educators should organize seminars in schools to enlighten students on how to effectively utilize the Internet for their social and overall development.
