NICK CARBONARO

Assistant Professor
Department of Business Administration and Economics

I have a story most students can relate to.  Having started my private sector career at Costco Wholesale as a part-time employee while being a full-time Long Beach City College student in 2004, I moved into management for the warehouse giant upon my graduation in 2008 from the University of Southern California Marshall School of Business.  While being in management at Costco, I earned my MBA from California State University, Fullerton.  Prior to becoming an Associate Professor at LBCC, I was also a member of the adjunct faculty at LBCC, Cerritos College as well as El Camino College.  I have taught many different business subjects; but, currently I teach General Business, Digital and Social Media, and Personal Financial Management.  I am also co-adviser to the LBCC Business Club. 

In order to provide the highest quality education for my students I do a variety of professional development and speaking activities.  Such highlights include:

  • Annual Speaker for Cengage Engagement Tech Conference

  • Currently serving on multiple Educational Advisory Board Committees

  • Google AdWords and Analytics Certified

  • Hubspot Social Media Certified

  • LinkedIn Champion

  • Twitter Flight School Certified

  • Regular attendee to Bixel Exchange LA Tech Talent Pipeline Roundtable discussions with tech industry professionals from the largest social media companies in the world.

I consider LBCC a second home.  My grandmother worked at LBCC.  My father and mother met on campus.  All three of my siblings have attended LBCC and as a student at LBCC I was a member of the President's Ambassadors. 

Outside of the classroom I am married, have 2 amazing children and my Bordoodle Rubble that are everything to me.  Having a wife that is also an alumni of USC, you will see our family on Saturdays watching the Men of Troy dominate the gridiron.  Besides Trojan football, I enjoy attending Cottonwood Church, watching the Lakers and the Angels, singing karaoke, binge-ing on Netflix, as well as tuning into anything and everything Marvel related!  As a millenial, I am glued to social media feeds (mainly Twitter, Snapchat and YouTube) so I am always up to date on the current social, political and financial trends dominating the internet.

To reach me either drop by my office, call, or email and I would love to hear your story!
