Chief Executive Officers (CEOs) and their staff manage companies with the intention to maximize profits. That at the same time managers also have an impact on war and peace is a rather new concept, which until today has not been analyzed systematically by scientists. In order to fill this research gab the Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) in Zurich has launched a “business of peace” research project. This paper shows that this new field of research is gaining both interest and importance in the business community.
