Mobile Learning (m-learning) a learning method facilitated by the convenience of mobile technology has a crucial role to play in the development of quality education in Nigeria which represents the fourth Sustainable Development Goal. However, Despite the advantages of mobile learning as an emerging learning method and its adoption across several disciplines, research into its adoption in accounting education and within developing contexts including Nigeria is still at infancy. This study, therefore, investigates the readiness of Accounting students in Nigeria to utilize m-learning for their accounting education. The survey research design was employed with copies of a relevant questionnaire distributed to 1,225 accounting students in three tertiary as well as three professional institutions in Nigeria, a total of 1021 of the retrieved copies were deemed suitable for data analyses. The study observes that there is a widespread usage of mobile devices and technology, especially smart devices among accounting students in both tertiary and professional institutions. It also found that the cost of internet access, instability of network as well as the level of the inexperience of students and instructors may impede the successful adoption of m-learning in Nigeria. The study recommends that m-learning adoption of m-learning in Nigerian should go in-line with the enhancement of mobile infrastructure especially network coverage and the training of students as well as instructors in the country to use mobile technology for learning. This will bring sustainable development to education in Nigeria.
