USC ELAINE AND KENNETH LEVENTHAL SCHOOL OF ACCOUNTINGNot So Risky BusinessNew risk management course demanded byindustry launches spring 2018Risk management has been around forever. But where are theclasses, minors or majors at universities? They’re hard to find.USC Leventhal aims to fill the gap, rolling out a new course inspring 2018 and developing a minor.“What’s interesting is that most companies have self taught riskmanagement,” said James (Jim) Leonetti ’81, who joined USCLeventhal as an adjunct professor in 2016 after a long career asa senior financial executive in the finance, banking, real estate,mortgage and rental equipment industries.“While some universities offer a class in risk management, notmany offer a minor or major. That’s part of the reason insurancecompanies and banks are so excited by the fact that Dean Holderand Dean Ellis are putting this program together. There is a hugedemand for risk management professionals in the industry,”Leonetti added, “and this program will set USC students apart.”“Risk management is an area of business that has changed greatlyin its complexity and breadth in the last few decades,” saidLeventhal Dean William W. Holder. “Advances in sophisticatedquantitative methods and the availability of complex risktransferring financial instruments and other devices havebecome commonplace, and Professor Leonetti’s leadership iskey to developing a curriculumwhich provides risk managementstudents with the requisiteknowledge and skills.”Prof. Jim LeonettiWHY RISK MANAGEMENTEDUCATION?Intended as an introductorycourse, ACCT 499: EnterpriseRisk Management will cover riskidentification, analysis, controland financing. Leonetti will beits instructor, while Gene Miller,administrative director andprofessor emeritus of clinicalentrepreneurship, is developing acourse sequence for the minor.NOT SO RISKY BUSINESS, CONTINUED ON PAGE 3Fall 2017Expert in BehavioralAccountingPROF.

A Word From the Deandifferent industry — and no, you won’t be sitting alone inan office looking at numbers all day long.To the USC Leventhal Community The feedback from two recruiting events, a paneldiscussion and a networking lunch, has been tremendous.Many students say they are considering a field that wasn’ton their radar just a semester ago or changing to anaccounting major. Leventhal will no doubt be adding tothe number I mentioned above.Leventhal is fortunate tohave 557 undergraduateaccounting majors forthe 2017-18 academicyear. Those studentsknow what we learnedlong ago: An accountingdegree opens doors.Not all students entercollege understandingthat accounting is thelanguage of businessand that fluency in thatlanguage will take them far in their careers. We make aneffort to educate students in our introductory coursesabout opportunities for accounting majors.Last year, Assistant Professor Julie Suh volunteered tocoordinate our undergraduate recruiting, and she hasbrought the same enthusiasm to recruiting that she doesto the subject matter. She is doing a remarkable job ofopening students’ eyes to how accounting can take youwherever you want to go in business — not only to a BigFour firm, but also to the rank of CFO in a completelyAll best wishes for the holidays and a happy new year!Fight on!Best Regards,William W.

NOT SO RISKY BUSINESS, CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1“All businesses have some form of risk they end up relegatingto the CFO or to somebody in the finance group or legal group,”Leonetti explained. “It’s about more than insurance. Riskmanagement encompasses how do you deal with the likelihoodthat something bad could happen to the business in a number ofways.”The classic example of risk is the loss of an IT center. Whatbackups does the company have? “That’s the old school, classicrisk management,” Leonetti said, “but I think particularly asSarbanes-Oxley came about, thinking is much more broad. Riskmanagement has gone from making sure the computers arebacked up to wide-ranging overview systems and processes.”Furthermore, he said, private equity firms and investment banksare actively using risk management techniques to understand andmanage the risks inherent in their portfolios. Every business hasrisks, and understanding the risks and how to manage those riskswill be a key emphasis in the introductory course. For example:How do you focus on risk with your customers, in terms ofhow concentrated should be your receivable balances? Howconcentrated should be your supply chain? What are the risksthat a business faces in its currency? In its markets? In itsfinancing? From its competition? From technology advances?What are the risks that involve property and people? What are thepotential risks and opportunities of a merger or an acquisition?“Insurance and financial services businesses in Southern Californiaand farther afield are looking for graduates with the academicskillsets and tools to jump in and grow with the company, helpingto manage risk and helping to assess what risk to take on,” Leonettisaid.Any business student should have a very good appreciation andunderstanding of risk, Leonetti noted. But it’s also useful for a widevariety of disciplines, including economics and public policy —not to mention anyone who owns a home or a car or purchasesinsurance. Plus, risk management positions are good-paying jobs.“A senior risk person with meaningful experience can make wellover six figures,” he said.A PASSION FOR THE SUBJECTThere aren’t a lot of textbooks on the subject, so Prof. AndrewTinseth, an expert in processes and controls, spent monthsresearching materials. “He was critically important in getting thecourse off the ground,” Leonetti said.And Leonetti was the right person to teach it. “I have a passionfor the subject,” he said. “I’m not an insurance expert; I ambringing my perspective to the risk management process frommy experience as a CFO in banking and finance. As a former CFO,I spent a lot of time on the credit side of the business in bankingin terms of credit analysis and asset review and credit reviewand understanding the risk tendencies of assets in the late ’80sand early ’90s when banks were going to a risk-based capitalstandard.”With this groundbreaking course and minor, Leventhal is not doneinnovating. Leonetti said, “Ultimately, we would hope to offer amajor and potentially a master’s degree.”BUSTINGACCOUNTING MYTHSProf. Julie Suh brings in professionals to prove tostudents that accounting is the best majorAssistant Professor of Clinical Accounting Julie Suh has to bustsome accounting myths before she can encourage her studentsto become accounting majors. Since last semester when shevolunteered to help with undergraduate recruiting for Leventhal,she has organized events that bring in professionals to set therecord straight on a couple myths and inform students about thebenefits of an accounting education.“By educating students about what opportunities are open toaccounting majors, we hope to recruit them to Leventhal and theBig Four and other accounting jobs,” Suh said.Myth No. 1: Accounting is boring. You sit behind a deskall day crunching numbers, and you don’t interact withanyone.Last semester Suh invited recent Big Four professionals from allpractice areas for a panel discussion about careers in accounting. Then she had to recruit students from ACCT 280 and 281.“A lot of students have preconceived notions about what accounting is,” Suh said, “so I had to spin it for the generation thatcreated the term “FOMO” (fear of missing out). I marketed it thisway: ‘This email went to 1,200 students, and we have 259 seatsin the auditorium, so grab your seats while you can!’ Tapping into‘act now, or you’ll regret it.’”The turnout, about 100 students, was pretty good — especiallyconsidering the event was held on a Friday at 8 a.m.!Suh asked the panelists questions she frequently gets duringoffice hours:What is the difference between audit, tax, advisory and consulting? What do you do on your job? What do you like about yourjob? What are the skills you learned on your job? If you could goback and give your former self advice on recruiting, what wouldit be?“The panelists were very excited about their jobs and the firmsthey work for,” Suh said, “so they did a really good job selling thejob. I made a joke that they were paid actors.”Suh knew the event was a success from the emails and conversations after the event. “A lot of students told me that thisopened their eyes to what accounting is. Students reallystarted thinking about accounting as a future career.”BUSTING ACCOUNTING MYTHS, CONTINUED ON PAGE 113

Prof. Keller’sSecond RetirementJoseph Keller is not one to brag. When we contacted theprofessor of clinical accounting about an interview prior to hisMay retirement from USC Leventhal, he replied, “I had hopedto slip quietly away without anybody noticing.” (Sorry, Joe!)Ever polite and agreeable, Keller agreed to talk, despite hisreservations. “I grew up in an environment where my parentsconvinced me that I shouldn’t brag and there is nothing quiteas strong as quiet strength. So this is hard for me,” he said.“But I appreciate the opportunity to be interviewed, and it’snice that someone cared to say something about me.”At least he could laugh about the really embarrassingquestions, like What would you like to be remembered for?That reminded Keller of another conversation he hadbefore he started at Arthur Andersen. He told someone herespected, who happened to be an engineer, that he wasgoing to become a tax accountant. “And he said, ‘Don’t dothat. You’ll just be a parasite. All you’ll be doing is living offother people and keeping track of their taxes. You ought tobecome an engineer and create things,’” Keller recalled. “Ikind of laughed at that. But I felt a little badly about what hewas saying.”Keller started at Andersen anyway, always with the idea ofteaching when he retired. He quickly found he was doingsomething constructive. “I realized early on in my careerat Andersen that I did have a product I was creating. I washelping young people to grow and develop their careers,and that’s even been more true at USC. Whatever I’veaccomplished has been primarily in the lives of students andpeople I’ve dealt with.”“Like I said, I was hoping to just drive off into the sunset,”he said. “But I would hope that people would remember meas a teacher who was enthusiastic about his subject — Ilove taxes, I love corporate taxes — and who was interestedin the development and the growth of his students. If I’mremembered that way, that will be fine with me.”“Joe Keller has contributed so much in so many ways to ourtax programs,” said Leventhal Dean William W. Holder. “Fromthe classroom to his leadership that he provided to otherfaculty to his tireless work with the Deloitte FanTAXtic casestudy teams — his work and contributions are exemplary.We are thrilled that last year’s FanTAXtic team is sending Joeout on a particularly high note, as the team was awarded firstplace at this year’s Deloitte National Case Competition.”A MEANINGFUL ROLE AS TEACHERFor Keller, who spent 29 years in tax at Arthur Andersenand more than 18 at USC, the joy shined through when hegot to talk about teaching. “I would say my greatest careeraccomplishment both at USC and Andersen has been theopportunity to help develop people.”Keller said he had always wanted to teach. After earning his BSand MS in accounting at Utah State University, he went to thehead of the accounting school and asked where he should gethis Ph.D. “His answer was ‘don’t,’” Keller recalled. “He said, ‘Ifyou really want to teach, what you ought to do is go out andget a job and make some money and learn how to do somethings, and you’ll always have time in your life when you canteach.’ That was probably the best advice I’ve ever received.”4Prof. Joseph KellerTWO REWARDINGCAREERSKeller joined Andersen’sLos Angeles tax division in1970 and became a partnerin 1980. His main areas ofconcentration includedthe financial services,manufacturing and realestate industries. He heldnumerous leadershippositions, includingpartner-in-charge of thefirm’s federal tax practice inLos Angeles.Some of the highlights of his work were working with “greatclients and outstanding people” and training on bothtechnical and leadership topics. He said it was also fun tohead up a partner issues task force that looked at issuespartners face around the world.One day, he was teaching at a firm-wide training session forAndersen that a USC professor happened to attend. GlennFreed asked him if he would be interested in teaching a nightclass at USC. Keller said yes and taught for several quarters inthe evening before he retired from Andersen and came to USCfull-time in 1999.“I had planned to go back and teach at my alma mater inUtah, but this opportunity at USC came up and I jumpedPROF.

Jacob Soll Takes‘The Reckoning’Around the WorldWHO RISES TO ROCK STAR STATUS BY WRITING A BOOKON THE HISTORY OF ACCOUNTING? MEET JACOB SOLL.Soll, an accounting historian with joint appointments atUSC Leventhal and USC Dornsife, has been globe-trottingsince the 2014 publication of The Reckoning: FinancialAccountability and the Rise and Fall of Nations.Jacob Soll with the president of the USC Alumni Association in Taipei,Johnny Kao.The book, which shows how accounting has influenced thefinancial health of major economies over the past 2,000years, became a bestseller in Japan, South Korea and Taiwan,countries facing economic challenges. “The publics of thesecountries seem more financially literate than others in Europeand the U.S. and much more involved with public accountingstandards,” Soll says. “I have hope for Taiwan and Korea, butJapan is in big trouble.”The Greek and Portuguese translations have receivedsignificant attention in those debt-ridden countries. “Whenpeople run out of options,” Soll says, “sometimes they getserious. And public accounting reform is the serious way tomanage financial crises.”The USC Alumni Association in Taipei met with Jacob Soll, who gave apresentation of the book and then did a book signing.After giving a seminar at the School of Management andAccounting at the National University of Taiwan in September,Soll gave a public lecture, attended by hundreds and followedby a mobbed book signing that made the nightly nationalnews. When he presented the book to the Taipei USC AlumniClub, he found a huge community of engaged and energeticTrojans.As he prepared for his keynote address for the annualconference of the European Court of Auditors at the EuropeanCommission in Brussels in October, Soll explained howleading public accountants are trying to spread InternationalPublic Sector Accounting Standards. “They are looking forcommunicators who can explain the current and loomingfinancial crises, but also the challenges the profession facesin the future.”Soll remains optimistic. “I feel like the book is making a smallbut serious impact around the world. This is in great part toDean Holder and to Professor Ken Merchant, who bothhelped me write my book, and to Merle Hopkins who hashelped my students understand accounting in historicalcontext. But really, thanks go to Dean Holder, who hassteadfastly supported my research and my work with theJacob Soll presenting “The Reckoning” to the Greek Prime Ministerwith USC President C. L. Max Nikias. They spoke of accounting reformfor an hour.Greeks, culminating in the enormously successful Greek DebtSummit at USC a year ago.”Soll, who was invited to speak with government officials inGreece in 2014 and presented The Reckoning to the primeminister alongside USC President C. L. Max Nikias in June2017, noted that the Greek government started “seriouspublic financial management reform around implementingaccrual accounting.”“It’s a slog, but if one doesn’t give up, progress can be made.”5

Volleyball, Hockey and Other AssetsMeet two Leventhal students who know all aboutteamwork. Jordan Dunn ’18 is a USC Marks ScholarAthlete Award winner and captain of the USC Volleyball team; and Ryan Santana is a former pro hockeyplayer turned graduate accounting student.CRUNCHING NUMBERS AND CRUSHINGTHE BRUINSJordan Dunn’s ’18 memories at USC Leventhal include aDeloitte conference, a KPMG internship and victory overUCLA’s volleyball teamWHAT INTERESTED YOUIN BUSINESS ANDACCOUNTING?I actually came into USCthinking that I wanted to bea mechanical engineer. Butafter about a half a semester, I realized that I didn’tlike science as much as Ithought and I dropped it.I soon found business andtransferred into Marshall.Jordan DunnUpon taking my first accountingclass with Professor Julie Suh, she told me she would get meto switch into accounting, and she was right. I still wanted totake some more Marshall classes that I thought were interesting, so I decided to double major in both accounting andbusiness.WHY DID YOU CHOOSE USC?I got recruited for volleyball to play at USC my freshman yearof high school [in Corona, Calif.]. I had no idea what I wanted to do at that time. All I knew was that I wanted to go toa school in California that had a top volleyball program andwas highly ranked academically. When I came on a visit mysophomore year, I completely fell in love with the campus andcouldn’t see myself going anywhere else.WHAT DID YOU DO AT THE DELOITTE NATIONALLEADERSHIP CONFERENCE?I was lucky enough to get to go to Deloitte University in Dallas,Texas, which is one of the most beautiful places I have stayedat. I spent three days collaborating with other students as8well as accounting professionals, working on understandingthe workplace and how best to be successful in it. A highlightfor me was getting to pitch advertising ideas to Raise AgainstHunger and then helping bag thousands of meals for those inneed.WHAT WERE THE HIGHLIGHTS OF YOUR KPMGINTERNSHIP?My internship with KPMG was an awesome experience. I gotto spend a week in Florida for National Intern Training andwas able to meet so many new people and grow my network.I worked in the downtown Los Angeles office and really enjoyed everyone I got to work with. I was a part of the forensicadvisory department and got to help with a couple differentprojects.WHEN DID YOU START PLAYING VOLLEYBALL? WHAT DOYOU LOVE ABOUT IT?I didn’t start playing volleyball until high school, which ismuch later than most of my current teammates. I grew upplaying soccer and made the transition to volleyball whenI realized that I needed to utilize my height [6’4”] for something. After playing soccer for so long, which became boring,volleyball was so new and exciting. It is such a great sport —it’s fast paced and completely team-oriented.WHAT IS IT LIKE TO BE A USC MARKS SCHOLAR ATHLETEAWARD WINNER?Being a student-athlete is very challenging. Having to balanceso many different aspects of my life takes a lot of commitment. I strive to be at the top of anything I do, whether in theclassroom or on the volleyball court. It requires a lot of timemanagement skills and sacrifice to succeed in both. I have tomiss class every other week during season to travel for awaygames. I have to stay on top of my work and be proactive withmy professors. The nice thing about going to such a great university is that they really support their student-athletes andwant them to succeed.WHAT ARE SOME HIGHLIGHTS FOR YOU AS A PLAYERAND THE CAPTAIN OF THE USC VOLLEYBALL TEAM?Some of my most memorable moments as a player on thisteam come from the cross-town rivalry games. Getting to playUCLA and represent the Women of Troy is such an honor forme — and there is no better feeling in the world than takingdown the Bruins! Apart from the huge games and exciting upsets, I love all the moments that I get to spend with my team.We have gotten really close, especially the girls that havebeen with me all four years.

Jordan Dunn & Ryan SantanaWHAT ABOUT YOUR EXPERIENCE AS A VOLUNTEERCOACH?Every summer, USC hosts a volleyball camp for kids ages 8to 18. Our whole team volunteers to help coach. It’s a greatexperience. Not only do we get to teach them how to playvolleyball, but my favorite part is just sharing with them whatcollege is like and what it could be like if they played at anamazing school.Because he loved it so much, his parents took him to the icerink. “I guess I was wrecking the floors back then!” he saidwith a laugh.Santana’s parents were extremely supportive of his passionfor the sport. There weren’t a ton of kids lining up to playhockey in Yorba Linda, Calif., but his parents were willing todrive to ice rinks in Costa Mesa or L.A.They also let him leave home at 16 to play.ON THE ICE AND IN THE OFFICERyan Santana MAcc ’18 loves the camaraderie ofhockey, accounting and USC LeventhalIt’s probably safe to saythere aren’t many professional hockey players whogive up the ice for accounting. Ryan Santana MAcc ’18is one.But, as he explains, hockeyand accounting aren’t allthat far apart.“Hockey is a very teamRyan Santanaoriented sport. Whether youknew a guy a day or week or two months, if you took a bad hit,your teammate had your back. That always resonated withme,” Santana said. “Also, it’s a very fast-paced environment,and you get to be creative.”Santana had gotten as far as he could in the junior leagues,and if he wanted to continue and pursue his dream of playing collegiate hockey, he had to move. He asked his parentsabout it when he was 14. After a couple of years of preppingfor such young independence, he moved to Chicago and thento Wisconsin. He went to Iowa too. He stayed with host families paid by the junior league teams of the USHL. Eventually,he was traded to Fairbanks in Alaska and spent his final yearin Canada.“It was a good experience,” Santana said. “It put things inperspective at an early age because I got used to taking careof myself.”Santana achieved his dream: he played Varsity Division Ihockey at Boston University, where he majored in economics.In a sport known for its fights, Santana earned two awardsfor sportsmanship: one at the Canadian RBC Junior NationalChampionship and one at BU. After that, he played professional hockey for two years with three NHL affiliates in theVOLLEYBALL, HOCKEY. AND OTHER ASSETS, CONTINUED ON PAGE 13Those are the same reasons he’s considering a career inaudit.“The audit industry is very team-oriented and can get fastpaced as well,” said Santana. “I enjoy working in groups,and I think it’s fun to be able to go back and forth with theclient and share a relationship where they know we’re thereto help. Another thing I like about audit is it’s dynamic, andyou can see a lot more companies and industries.”ACHIEVING THE DREAMWhen Santana was 3, he put on his sister’s rollerblades. “Myuncle got her rollerblades for her birthday, but she neverwore them, so I used them.”Ryan Santana at Boston University9

He has enjoyed the people more thananything else, “the quality of the people, the professors, theadministration and the students.”Over the years, Keller has developed various courses for theMaster of Business Taxation program.
