In 1999 Joern Meissner, who was then a lecturer and doctoral student at Columbia Business School, planted the foundation for Manhattan Review in New York City. Professor Meissner's lectures to MBA students at Columbia were defined by a unique talent to simplify and streamline complicated concepts to their core. A few of these students expressed that Meissner's teaching style would translate well to preparation for the Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT), and they suggested he come up with a strategy of GMAT prep that was better than their previous unproductive experiences. Meissner responded by creating original GMAT lectures that covered GMAT material using a succinct, simplified, and direct approach in language that was easy to follow and understand. Students quickly agreed that this method was far superior to the style of memorization and "tricks" offered by other test prep companies at the time.
In the years since, Manhattan Review has blossomed into an international educational services firm, with branches not only in Switzerland, but also major European, North American, Asian, and Australian cities. Our offerings have grown to include prep courses and private tutoring for the GRE, GMAT, LSAT, SAT, SSAT, ACT, ISEE, TOEFL, and IELTS, in addition to admissions consulting and application advisory services. Test prep for international applicants to universities in the English-speaking world has become one of our specialties, as a significant percentage of our student population lives outside of Switzerland and United States. We offer our test prep clients a truly encyclopedic understanding of higher education, as well as thorough familiarity with the educational communities and specialized student needs in Zurich, Geneva, and Lausanne, in addition to every metropolitan area we serve.

This philosophy was foremost to the establishment of Manhattan Review, and continues to remain its most valued principle today.
