We only hire the best at Manhattan Review. Obviously, we want instructors who have received high test scores (typically in the top 1%), but high scores in and of themselves are not enough. Some test prep companies in Zurich hire on exam performance alone, but at Manhattan Review, we go much deeper when bringing on a potential instructor. We want to know a great deal about a prospective teacher's academic accomplishments and background. Where did she go to university? In what subject did she major? What was her GPA? These are only a few of the questions we ask in the hiring process. We also consider previous teaching experience, and we only bring on individuals who have substantial prior teaching profiles. Our classroom instructors and individual tutors are distinguished graduates of the most highly ranked and venerated universities in the English-speaking world. Additionally, they possess subject-matter prowess in a variety of different academic disciplines. Finally, we select people with personalities and outside interests that make them well-suited for test prep instruction, particularly in the areas of classroom presence and approachability. All instructors are thoroughly trained in Manhattan Review's unique methods and materials. We believe our highly selective hiring process produces educators of rare ability to meet and exceed the needs of our Swiss student population when it comes to test preparation.
Manhattan Review originated in New York City in 1999 by Joern Meissner, who at the time was a distinguished doctoral student and instructor at Columbia Business School. Meissner received regular positive feedback from his students for his practical breakdowns of complex ideas. As a result, several of these students thought that his style of instruction would be perfect for Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) preparation, as in those days GMAT prep was lackluster and left a lot to be desired. Meissner went on to create a series of GMAT lectures that integrated his trademark method of teaching. Early returns were remarkably positive, and these lectures would become the basis of Manhattan Review's first test prep courses.
Manhattan Review has since expanded into the world's premier international test prep company, with offices not just in Zurich and throughout Switzerland, but in cities all over the world offering services for all of the major standardized university admission tests. Manhattan Review has helped thousands of students prepare for acceptance to the universities of their choice by increasing their ISEE, ACT, SAT, SSAT, GMAT, GRE, LSAT, TOEFL, and/or IELTS scores. We've also published a number of popular test prep textbooks, assisted business professionals improve their language skills, and strengthened university applications with our second-to-none admissions consulting offerings. We strive to combine the resources of a global company with the personalized service of a local firm, dramatically serving the educational needs of the Swiss Londonity in which we teach.
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.
