Imagining New Intersections Between Business and Peace

The Center for Peace and Commerce (CPC) is a collaborative effort between the School of Business Administration and the Joan B. Kroc School of Peace Studies to prepare new generations of change makers.  The CPC encourages students to develop and exercise innovative approaches for making a positive impact on the 4 Ps– people, profit, planet and peace.

The CPC contributes to a new paradigm for business and peacebuilding through teaching, scholarship, and social enterprise development.
