Abstract : The study of the resources component of national security is a major element in the ICAF curriculum; indeed, it emerged from Bernard Baruch's original intent: I should like to establish a little school ... to keep in touch with industry. Today, maintaining that scholarly link is largely undertaken within the Industry Studies (IS) Program. Through this program, however, ICAF expands upon Baruch's mandate by establishing an analytical framework for you, the student, to use in assessing the state of a selected industrial sector. As a result, you not only learn about an industry in particular, you learn how to learn about industry in general. The purpose of the IS Program is to contribute to the ICAF mission by providing students the opportunity to gain knowledge and experience in analyzing industry from a strategic perspective. The IS Program provides a practical experience, or lab, in analyzing the status of industry. Program objectives are to: Evaluate performance of industry in promoting economic welfare and serving national security needs; Examine the role of government policy or regulation and its effect on the capacity of industry to contribute to economic welfare and the national security strategy and Integrate the essential components of the ICAF core curriculum in an extended laboratory.
