The history of Manhattan Review dates back to 1999 when our company's founder, Joern Meissner, was a doctoral student at Columbia Business School. He soon became well-known for his ability to teach complex business theories with an easy-to-understand and streamlined methodology. Meissner was encouraged to apply his teaching methods to preparation for the Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT), the entrance exam for business school, and eventually these GMAT courses quickly became popular with students. The word spread in the graduate student community quickly and Manhattan Review became the industry's leading expert on GMAT prep. From these humble beginnings, a new and better approach to test preparation was born, and the seeds of a global test prep firm were firmly planted.
Manhattan Review rapidly expanded its test prep offerings to include services for the IELTS, TOEFL, LSAT, SAT, SSAT, ACT, ISEE, GMAT and GRE. We now teach test prep to countless students not only in Switzerland, but Europe, North America, Asia, Latin America, and Africa. Dr. Meissner still runs the company while also maintaining a vibrant career as a business school professor and author of several test prep textbooks. Manhattan Review's test prep services have helped thousands of students get accepted to undergraduate and graduate programs at selective universities in every country in the English-speaking world, including the London School of Economics and Harvard, just to name a few. We consider the success of our students to be paramount when it comes to the quality of our teaching.
Joern Meissner is an internationally renowned business school professor with a Diploma in Business Management at the University of Hamburg and a PhD in Management Science at Columbia Business School in New York City, one of the top Ivy League Schools. Upon completing his doctoral degree, Meissner chose the career trajectory of an academic and has now more than 25 years of experience as a postsecondary educator. His passion for teaching is evident, and he has taught business courses at the University of Hamburg, Lancaster University Management School, the Leipzig Graduate School of Management, and the University of Mannheim. Meissner's own research on supply chain management, dynamic pricing, and revenue management has been published in several well-known and respected academic journals. While Professor Meissner thoroughly enjoys his research, he believes that understanding an idea is only half of the fun; imparting knowledge to others is even more fulfilling. This philosophy was foremost to the establishment of Manhattan Review, and continues to remain its most valued principle today.
