Who we are

New Logo

Ricci Fellows is an association of 40 young professionals and students based in Switzerland, Beijing, Bogotá, Hong Kong, Kunming, London, Oxford, New York, Cambridge (USA), Stanford, St.Petersburg, Singapore and Tokyo.

We travel to far-off-the-beaten-track places in tightly-knit teams. We ‘do as the Romans do in Rome’, and choose to dispense with unnecessary creature comforts. After all, the Italian 17th century globetrotter Matteo Ricci didn’t exactly travel to Ming China in a luxury cruise. Destinations are selected in order for members to gain a visceral understanding of global strategic issues in the 21st century.
