This chapter explores over a decade of research into the what, why, how and where of technology entrepreneurship and commercialization education (Nelson & Monsen, 2014). Importantly, we build on the foundation of prior research into technology management education (Phan et al., 2009; Siegel, 2009), as well as science, technology and engineering entrepreneurship education (Fayolle et al., 2021). After first reviewing "what" technology commercialization education is, we review "why" technology commercialization education is increasingly important for higher education. Next, we explore specific examples of "how" technology commercialization is currently being taught in the classroom as well as general lessons-learned from the past. Beyond the classroom, we also explore "how" the university and regional ecosystems can be reformed to best support technology commercialization education and action. Building on this exploration of what, how, why and where, we conclude with recommendations for the structure, content, and context of technology commercialization education and practice in the future.
