THOMAS RYANThoughts on RetirementThomas Ryan, professor of the practice since2014, started as an adjunct with USC Leventhalin 2011. As he retires this year, he reflects withsincerity and his characteristic sense of humoron the past 10 years, while sharing insights froma 40-year career in industry.He brought to Leventhal over 25 years ofexperience involving technical specialties infinancial analysis, operational review and marketcomparable analysis involving acquisitionsand mergers, valuation of companies,and appraisal of underlying tangible andintangible assets. His career also included six years of leadership in a closelyheld construction company. In 2010, he retired as a partner in the TransactionServices Accounting, Valuation & Financial Reporting advisory services group ofPricewaterhouseCoopers.“We are placed on this earth to enjoy a meaningful life together with oneanother,” Ryan said. “Part of the enjoyment of life is a good, well-paying,meaningful career. At USC Leventhal my hope was to infuse a sense of humorand an interest in the ‘real events’ in the career world into the specific topicsaddressed in my courses.”What did you enjoy most about being a professor at USC Leventhal?Over the last 10 years, first and foremost, I have enjoyed the chance to simplytalk with others in our wonderful USC and, particularly, Leventhal community.Talking and interacting with students in the classroom and on campus has beengreat! The window of camaraderie offered by morning coffee and hot chocolate inthe Accounting Office break room before classes has been uplifting.Prof. Dan O’Leary NamedGlobal Visionary EducatorUSC Leventhal Professor of Accounting Dan O’Learywas one of 12 educators from around the worldrecognized as a Global Visionary Educator by UiPath,an American global software company for roboticprocess automation (RPA) founded in Romania andheadquartered in New York City.Following are some insights O’Leary shared withUiPath after receiving the award.What does this award mean to you?I work hard to integrate emerging technologies intomy teaching and research, so I am really proud tohave received this award. I have found that RPAtechnology is having a big impact on the world, so itis important to integrate it across our entire view oftechnology innovation and embed it in both teachingand research.What has been the impact of RPA on business?RPA provides business with the opportunity tofocus on becoming even more digital, takingmanual processes and automating them. But digitalinnovation requires more than just replicatingexisting processes, and instead focusing onreengineering those processes. RPA provides anumber of benefits, including consistency, costsavings, increased productivity, faster response anda range of other capabilities driving their adoption.But at the same time, the costs and benefits of RPAprovide a number of emerging research issues.O’LEARY, CONTINUED ON PAGE 10Working with colleagues on programs such as the SEC and Financial ReportingRYAN, CONTINUED ON PAGE 101

A Message From DEAN HOLDERIt has been a remarkable time for USC and the Leventhal School. Wehave transitioned from the COVID-necessitated exclusively onlineeducational experience to being back on campus with a hybridmix of online and on-campus classes, balancing the health needsof students and faculty alike. Through it all, I have watched thestudents, staff and faculty of our School skillfully maneuver throughthese challenges and continue to achieve remarkable success. Ibelieve that the School, through the actions of our dedicated faculty,staff, alumni and friends, continues to make significant strides inpursuing the excellence to which we constantly aspire. In this briefmessage, I chronicle a few of these accomplishments.I begin with our students. In a phrase, they are terrific. We continueto see greater diversification of our student body. We also seethat our students, while focused on their academic success,exhibit great concerns for our society as well. One clear example isprovided by our students’ contributions to the Volunteer Income TaxAssistance (VITA) program. In the last full year of this program, ledby undergraduate student Yeahwon Lee ’21, 68 Leventhal studentsin cooperation with the U.S. Internal Revenue Service providedapproximately 1,500 hours of volunteer service to assist residentsin the community surrounding USC in preparing their Federaland State income tax returns. Our students prepared returns for636 families and individuals, making sure that relatively complexdeductions and tax credits such as the earned income and childcarecredits were appropriately taken. The student-prepared returnsobtained approximately 1.1 million in refunds for individuals fromour neighboring community. It is noteworthy that these returns wereprepared remotely during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic inthe spring of 2021. This year, with a return to in-person meetingsand led by Leventhal student Jaja Tong ’23, we expect this service toexpand even further.In addition, one of last year’s accounting doctoral graduates becamethe first to secure a position with Harvard University, evidence thatour Ph.D. program has continued to rise in stature, attracting thebest and brightest.I frequently take the opportunity to convey the success of our faculty.Recently, Deloitte Chair in Accountancy Professor Richard Sloanwas appointed a member of the Financial Accounting StandardsAdvisory Council (FASAC) of the FASB. This key position involvesproviding advice and counsel to the FASB on a variety of their agendaitems. Accounting Circle Professor Regina Wittenberg-Moermanwas appointed senior editor of the Journal of Accounting Research,published by the University of Chicago and one of an exceptionallysmall group of top-tier accounting research journals. Herappointment, along with two other professors at MIT and Wharton,marks the first time in that journal’s history that individuals outsidethe University of Chicago have received such an appointment. Shejoins Professor Patricia Dechow, who serves as the managing editorof Review of Accounting Studies, and Professor Mark DeFond, whorecently served as the senior editor for The Accounting Review. Eachof these examples provides evidence of the exceptional quality of thefaculty of the Leventhal School.Our faculty is noted for contributing to the School in many otherways as well. An outstanding example is provided by Professor2Jack Barcal who recentlycompleted the 3 millionfunding of the John J. andCarol A. Barcal Chair inTaxation with a generousfinal contribution of over 1million. This exceptional giftbrings to 10 the number ofendowed chairs and professorships at the Leventhal School. Withthis gift, Professor Barcal will join Professor Emeritus Andy Mosich inestablishing endowed chairs named for members of our faculty anda legacy of excellence, respect and generosity that will literally last inperpetuity.George BrauneggPromoted toAssociate Professorof the PracticeIt also gives me great pleasure to announce our 2022 Leventhalgraduation speaker: Mr. Frank Thomas. Frank’s passion is people andbusiness. He is a 1999 Leventhal graduate and began his professionalcareer with Deloitte in the assurance and advisory services group ofthe firm’s Los Angeles office. Frank is a certified public accountant(inactive) in the state of California. Over the years, Frank has heldpositions from corporate vice president for The Ryland Group, Inc., apublicly traded Fortune 500 company and one of the nation’s largesthomebuilders, to executive director for Positive Alternatives forYouth, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization serving at-risk youth andfamilies in Los Angeles. He currently is the controller and HR leaderfor Sexton Home & Commercial Services, one of the largest homeand commercial services companies in the greater Phoenix area.Frank is married to Erika, his wife of 15 years, and is father to Sydney,14, and Kellen, 7.George Braunegg has felt connectedto USC since he earned his MBA atMarshall in 1981. After a 36-yearmanagement consulting and publicaccounting career, he startedteaching at USC Leventhal as anadjunct in 2018. This fall, he joined thefaculty as associate professor of thepractice. Teaching, he says, is a wayof “giving back to USC because USCwas good to me.” He looks forward tocontinuing to make an impact in theclassroom and through his outreachto high school students from underrepresented populations.I was privileged to hear Frank speak on the values of tenacity,sense of purpose and focus as necessary keys to professionalsuccess for young people. I found his message to be compellingand immediately asked him to consider becoming involved withthe Leventhal School, including serving as our graduation speaker.He accepted and now serves as a valuable member of our Boardof Advisors. His return to the dais this spring as commencementspeaker marks the second time he speaks to graduates — he wasselected as the student commencement speaker back in 1999.We couldn’t be more thrilled to welcome Frank Thomas back toLeventhal.Tell us about how you came to USC for your MBA in 1979.How I ended up at USC is sort of a funny story. As a studentat Indiana University of Pennsylvania, I was invited to attend alunch with a visiting professor from Penn State. Dr. Joe Cramer,professor and Arthur Andersen Faculty Fellow, came to campusto promote accounting careers. At lunch I learned that ProfessorCramer was leaving Penn State to teach at USC. During lunchI said something like, ‘If you become aware of internshipopportunities in California, please let me know.’ Of course, Ididn’t hear from him.I would be remiss not to mention the continued generosity of ouralumni and friends throughout practice. Through their gifts of timeand talent they provide essential advice that guides our educationalefforts. Their financial gifts also serve to make a USC accountingeducation feasible for many students and enhance our ability toattract outstanding faculty members.Summer internships with public accounting firms made meaware that I was not cut out to be an auditor, but I really likedthe kind of work that the management consultants were doing.Unfortunately, in those days, the firms’ management consultingpractices were populated with seasoned senior people and a fewMBAs. Hiring undergraduates just didn’t happen. So, I decidedthat my only shot at getting a management consulting positionwas to pass the CPA exam upon graduation and pursue an MBA.To the many individuals and groups who contribute in so many waysto our School, and on behalf of our students, staff and faculty, I offermy profound gratitude.Best Regards,William W. HolderDean, USC Leventhal School of AccountingAlan Casden Dean’s ChairNow cut to the fall of 1978. I decided to apply to Penn State’sMBA program and I remembered Professor Cramer. I wrotehim a letter — remember I only had lunch with this guy foran hour nine months before — that essentially said, ‘Wouldyou be willing to be a Penn State reference for me?’ ProfessorBRAUNEGG, CONTINUED ON PAGE 5LeventhalBY THE NUMBERSNo. 1National ranking of theMAcc program by theTFE Times40Years of industryexperience retiring Prof.Thomas Ryan brought tohis teaching position(SEE THOMAS RYAN,PAGE 1)1Number of urbanbeekeepers featured inthis issue(SEE GEORGE BRAUNEGG,THIS PAGE)439Number of S&P 500companies Deloitte andthe USC Risk ManagementProgram analyzed fortheir second report onthe “limited adoption ofamended SEC risk factordisclosure rules”(SEE RISK MANAGEMENT,PAGE 12)3050Number of students whowill participate in theinaugural session of GEMS,a new business leadershipprogram for Leventhal andMarshall students(SEE MICHAEL PARANAL ,PAGE 7)3

USC Leventhal NEWSBRAUNEGG, CONTINUED FROM PAGE 3Diversity asa PriorityProf. George Braunegg MBA ’79has made outreach a mission,in honor of the professor whofirst brought him to USCIn addition to teaching, accounting and urban beekeeping,Associate Professor of the Practice George Braunegg’s otherpassion is outreach aimed at increasing diversity in businessschools and the profession. Through his work with Volunteersof America, Los Angeles (VOALA) and Upward Bound, as well asthe Leventhal Leadership Program and recently relaunched USCchapter of the National Association for Black Accountants (NABA),Braunegg has plenty of outlets for making a difference where it issorely needed.Just like he views teaching at USC as a form of giving back for hisown education, he sees his work with Upward Bound as a way ofgiving back to Dr. Joe Cramer, the USC professor responsible forrecruiting Braunegg for his MBA, helping him acquire a muchneeded assistantship and giving him a place to stay in L.A. when hevisited the University. Cramer was an African American accountingprofessor whom Braunegg met when Cramer was visiting hisundergraduate school, Indiana University of Pennsylvania, as aprofessor and Arthur Andersen Faculty Fellow from Penn State. Hedied in the late 1980s.“Last year, Professors Helen Brown-Liburd of Rutgers Universityand Jennifer R. Joe of the University of Delaware determinedthat in 2020 there were just 211 Black faculty members teachingaccounting at the nation’s business schools,” Braunegg said. “Giventhat statistic, Professor Cramer had to have been one of just ahandful of Black professors in the world.”Braunegg began his outeach efforts 27 years ago, when he joinedthe Board of VOALA, a nonprofit with programs addressing drugand alcohol recovery and rehabilitation, prison re-entry, gangintervention and sex trafficking prevention and supporting theneeds of disadvantaged veterans, senior citizens, youth (early headstart and head start), the homeless and high school students. “Thebreadth of constituencies served by VOALA is truly extraordinary,”Braunegg said. “I believe that VOALA is the best-run, least-knownnot-for-profit in Los Angeles.”In the case of high school students, VOALA is the largest provider ofUpward Bound programs in L.A. County. Upward Bound is a federalprogram focused on preparing first-generation students frominner-city schools for admission to four-year universities. Most ofthe students in the program are Hispanic and African American.Over the years, the younger associates in Braunegg’s firm wouldtutor Upward Bound students, develop programming and serveas mentors. One Saturday, three recently hired undergraduatesfrom his firm led a session exploring “What is college really like?”Braunegg went around the room of 60 students asking, “What areyou planning on studying in college?”“One woman said business. All the rest were considering socialservices, art, fashion, teaching or health care. None of them saidaccounting, engineering, architecture, pharmacy, medicine, ordentistry,” Braunegg said. “When I asked the executive directorabout the situation, she said, ‘George, they don’t know anyaccountants or engineers.’ The light bulb went off.” (see sidebar)Outreach at LeventhalBased on what he’d learned about underrepresented students nothaving role models, Braunegg revamped his efforts.“When I got to Leventhal, I decided I was going to take USCstudents that looked similar to Upward Bound students out to thevarious high schools,” he said. “I’ve got to tell you, the first time atCrenshaw High School was magical. It was a completely differentexperience than when I was there with young people from my firmwho were White and Asian.”The USC students shared how they had been in the shoes of thehigh schoolers only a year and a half earlier. They had appliedthemselves and gotten accepted at USC. It was possible.“That message resonated with these high schoolers,” Brauneggsaid. “You could see them starting to think for the first time, ‘MaybeI can get into a high-quality university like USC.’”“We have no idea of the enormous hurdles kids in Upward Boundprograms face,” he added.One of the kids in the session asked the USC students, “Do yourparents support you going to college? My parents don’t want me togo to college.”When another student asked, “What does it cost to go to USC?,”Braunegg interjected. “Let me ask your question to each of theUSC students another way. How much are you paying to go toUSC?” he said. “One hundred percent of them were on either a fullscholarship or some form of financial aid which cost them nothing.”This fall two students from Crenshaw were admitted to USC: oneto Marshall and another to USC’s film school. “I’m doing my bestto persuade the young man admitted to Marshall to seriouslyconsider a dual Marshall/Leventhal degree,” Braunegg said.Braunegg’s belief that making an impact is doneone by one matches the mission of Leventhal’soutreach program, the Leventhal LeadershipProgram, which takes a highly individualizedapproach to making community college studentsaware of the potential of earning an accountingor business degree. “Leventhal’s outreach issomething that I am committed to, and DeanHolder has been very supportive,” he said. “Mygoal is to expand the students that I bring fromUSC to the Upward Bound programs to makehigh school students aware of college majorsand careers in engineering, architecture andpharmacy.”Diversity in theAccountingProfessionAfter an Upward Bound session, Prof.Braunegg did the research. “What Ilearned was shocking,” he said. It firedup his passion for outreach even more. Of the roughly 654,000 CPAs in theUnited States, the National Associationof Black Accountants estimates thatonly 5,000 are African American.While there are more Hispanic CPAs,the percentage is still substantiallybelow the percentage of Hispanics inthe general population. The first CPA examination wasconducted in 1896, but the first AfricanAmerican didn’t become a CPA until1921. There were laws back then thatyou couldn’t take the exam withoutexperience. That prevented AfricanAmericans from taking the exambecause no one would hire them.Fortunately, in 1921, New Hampshirepassed a law eliminating theexperience requirement. It took until 1965 — 44 years —before the 100th African Americanbecame a CPA.Cramer responded, ‘Absolutely, on one condition. You also have to apply to USC.’Fantastic!In late February of 1979, I learned that I was accepted by Penn State. A week ortwo later over spring break, I got a call from Professor Cramer. He said, ‘Nextweek you’re going to get an acceptance letter from USC.’ While I still plannedon attending Penn State, out of curiosity, I asked, ‘How much does it cost to goto USC?’ When he told me, I literally just started laughing. The figure was so farbeyond what I could possibly afford. I was a first-generation college student. Myfather was a steel worker. The most money he made in a year was 30,000, andthat year we never saw him because he worked so much overtime. I then toldProfessor Cramer, ‘Thank you so much for all you’ve done for me, but there is noway I can afford USC.’ In response he said, ‘Can you come out to L.A. next week?’I can still remember putting my hand over the phone and saying, ‘Dad, can I go toLos Angeles next week?’ In response he said, ‘Let’s see how much it will cost.’ TheAirline Deregulation Act was signed by Jimmy Carter in October of 1978, and asa result plane ticket prices plummeted. I can still remember the price: round tripPittsburgh to Los Angeles was 180.So I flew from Pittsburgh to L.A. in March of 1979. Can you believe it? ProfessorCramer let me stay at his house. He introduced me to Professor Doyle Williams,head of SC’s Accounting Department. Professor Williams said, ‘We’d love tohave you here at USC. We’ll give you a full scholarship in the form of a teachingassistantship. Are you willing to come to USC?’ I responded ‘Absolutely!’While I didn’t get a chance to work with Professor Cramer as a teaching assistant,I did have the incredible opportunity to work with iconic professors like AndyMosich, Jerry Arnold, and Dean Bill Holder. So that’s how I got to USC. All becauseof the kindness of one individual that I met during a one-hour lunch that took achance on me.Why did you want to transition to academia?I never lost the connection to SC since I was an MBA student back in 1979. WhenI arrived on campus, it was Dean Holder’s first semester on campus as well. I waslucky enough to be his teaching assistant in 1979 for Introduction to Accounting,and we’ve remained good friends ever since. In those days, TAs would teach Fridaylabs. I enjoyed teaching at that level and always thought it would be great to teachundergraduate accounting when I retired.How did you start as an adjunct?In the fall of 2017, my partners and I sold the management consulting firm westarted in 1986. Shortly thereafter, Professor Pat Kinsella, an old friend from myKPMG days, asked me if I’d be interested in teaching Mergers and AcquisitionsAccounting in the graduate school so that he could teach an auditing class offeredto him by Professor John Owens. I agreed to do so, and I started teaching thatone class in the fall of 2018. Toward the end of the semester, I was asked to teachManagerial Accounting in the undergrad program. This evolved into teaching threeclasses a semester as an adjunct professor. Then in the spring of 2021 when a fulltime faculty position was posted, I applied for it.What do you love about teaching at USC Leventhal?No question about it, it’s the interaction with the students. Working with them ona day-to-day basis, understanding what’s concerning them, how they’re viewingthe future and discussing their plans is fantastic. I thoroughly enjoy helping themBRAUNEGG, CONTINUED ON PAGE 645

USC Leventhal NEWSMichael C. Paranal MBT ’06Joins FacultyBRAUNEGG, CONTINUED FROM PAGE 5translate what we are discussing in the classroom to how it isapplied in the real world. I try to do that by giving them examplesof how I’ve used what they just read about in practical businesssituations to solve business problems. As I share an example frommy consulting experience, it’s almost as if I can see light bulbs goingoff above their heads when they get it.It’s also a way to stay involved with young people, learn from themand give them a perspective on what they’re going to encounterwhen they get out there. I firmly believe that the undergraduatecourse that I teach, Introduction to Managerial Accounting, isthe most important Marshall undergraduate class that they aregoing to take. The concepts, skills, tools and knowledge related todata-driven decision making that they are exposed to in 281 areessential in business and one’s daily financial life. I used the things Iteach in 281 on a daily basis throughout my consulting career, bothsupporting clients as well as working with my partners to run ourfirm.Can you talk about your approach to teaching accounting?I try to get them to look at the material in a different way — asopposed to asking students to learn formulas or techniques, I tryto give them a clear line of sight into how practically it can be used,both in their future business careers as well as in their personallives. Some of these concepts around opportunity costs, budgeting,working capital, etc. are as applicable personally as they are ifyou’re trying to manage a business.No doubt, the language of business is accounting. Now thatdoesn’t mean that you can’t be successful without being fluent inaccounting, but if you are there is no question that you have a legup. But let’s face it, accountants have a reputation of being ‘boring.’I make fun of us all the time. At the end of each class, I have anaccounting joke of the day. They’re usually self-deprecating. Here’sone: ‘What did the accountant’s spouse say when she/he couldn’tfall asleep? Honey, tell me about your work.’ Students typicallygroan. However, it’s been my experience that most accountantsdon’t fit the stereotype.I try to make students aware that public accounting or managementconsulting is a great way to make a living. I point out that over thecourse of my career I had an opportunity to look under the coversat literally hundreds of businesses at a chromosomal level. I makestudents aware that as a management consultant or a publicaccountant they too could work with companies in a wide rangeof industries, having different cultures, utilizing different businessmodels, experiencing different levels of success, etc.Finally, I try to make students aware of the importance of riskmanagement in business. A big part of what my firm did in thelast few years was all around risk management and regulatorycompliance. It became a huge focus in financial services asthe regulators clamped down on anti-money laundering andenforcement of the Bank Secrecy Act in response to nefariousactivities of organized criminals, foreign governments as well asbad actors or terrorist organizations around the world. Specifically,I point to Leventhal and Marshall’s Risk Management Program as afantastic opportunity to gain some insight. Professor Kristen Jaconihas done an absolutely terrific job establishing that program.What are your hobbies or interests?Well, how about something random . I am an urban beekeeper.My dad kept bees when I was a kid, but stopped probably when Iwas 8 or 9. I have very fond memories of the experience workingwith my dad with the hives. Honey bees fascinated me. They stilldo.Until 2015, it was illegal to raise bees in the city of L.A. In 2015,my next-door neighbor’s boyfriend, a 95-year-old retired doctor,suggested that we raise some bees together. We formed aninformal partnership called “Beekeeping Buddies.” I do a lot ofhoney bee rescues. People call me when there are swarms intheir yard or bees have taken up residence in irrigation boxes,walls or walls of houses. Right now, we have 20 hives in backyardsthroughout Ladera Heights, View Park and Westchester. Last yearI put two hives at Los Angeles County’s Stone View Nature Center,across La Cienega from Kenneth Hahn Park.This year I submitted a grant request to the Baldwin HillsConservancy with a not-for-profit called Honeylove.org and wasawarded 19,000 to build a honeybee apiary on County landadjacent to Stoneview Nature Center by the oil fields. So, we’regoing to be starting that apiary and holding educational classes atthe Nature Center. Beekeeping is becoming more popular becausethe bees are in trouble.Other than beekeeping, I like to fool around with cars andwoodworking. I’ve got a warehouse that I use as a woodshop,garage and place I can go to stay out of my wife’s hair.Michael ParanalJD MBA MBT CPAParanal earned a BSin accounting at theUniversity of Missouri,an MBT at Leventhal,a Post Graduatedegree in InternationalTransactional Law fromOxford, and a JDMBAat the University ofPennsylvania and theWharton School.He began his career as a senior associate at Deloitte ininternational tax and transfer pricing, and then spent twoyears as an honors program fellow in law at the Securitiesand Exchange Commission in the division of enforcementin Washington, D.C. He was an associate attorney incorporate finance with Latham and Watkins in New Yorkand London before taking a job with the European CentralBank as legal counsel in the finance division. Now, heis director of advisory in the U.S. for Unibail-RodamcoWestfield.Michael C. Paranal MBT ’06 is a firm believer in lifelong learning.His Filipino parents stressed the importance of not only educationbut also finding what you love to do. As a result, he earned fivedegrees and has enjoyed a varied, as well as international, career.He brings that wealth of education and experience to his new roleas assistant professor of clinical accounting at USC Leventhal.You were not only an MBT grad, but the classrepresentative and the commencement speaker. Do youremember what you talked about at commencement?Everyone knows that the Leventhal School is one of the topaccounting schools in the world. So, I knew coming into it that itwas going to be challenging and competitive. But what I didn’texpect, and what I was pleasantly surprised with, was that itdidn’t feel like I was competing with everyone else in my class.The camaraderie and the support of the people in the programfelt like we were all summiting the same mountain. We were tryingto accomplish the goal, which is to graduate, together and pushourselves to be the best version of ourselves. That is what I spokeabout during my commencement speech — the shared experienceand challenges of what it is like to be in a top program, taught bythought leaders and experts in the field, and trying to perform yourbest. You feel like you are really part of a family, instead of being onyour own and trying to survive.How did you become an adjunct professor in 2019?I’ve always wanted to teach. I come from a long line of educatorsin my family. My dad, brother and sisters have been, at variouspoints in their careers, professors. While I’m a young professionaland experiencing what it is like to work in the real world, I wantto parlay that into sharing it with students. I have a very strongmentorship relationship with Professor [of Clinical AccountingPatricia] Mills. At one point before I moved to Europe, I was naggingher: “If you need someone to guest lecture, I’d be very happy.”When she became vice dean for teaching and innovation, shereached out to me. I had just come back from Europe, and sheneeded someone to teach a class. So, that is the beauty of makingsure you nurture your relationships while in school, not only withyour classmates, but with your professors, because they can opendoors for you in the future, whether it is in academia or otherwise.This is the beauty of the Trojan Family, right?So, then there was a full-time opening?Yes, one of the pillars of the academy was retiring, and they had anopening. I kid you not, I saw the opening on my phone right afterit was posted. I was out running, and when I saw it, I went
