The early beginnings of Manhattan Review began at Columbia Business School in 1999 when Joern Meissner, then a doctoral student at the university, earned a widespread reputation for breaking down advanced and complicated subjects in an accessible and easy to understand manner while giving lectures to MBA students. A handful of these students thought that Meissner's teaching style would translate well to delivering test preparation for graduate school admissions tests such as the LSAT. They challenged him to come up with a method of prep that was better than their own unproductive and lackluster experiences. Meissner responded by creating original lectures that covered LSAT, GRE, and GMAT material from a different yet concise and simplified perspective. Students recognized that his perspective was far superior to the boring memorization and dull tricks offered by other prep companies.
Since then, Manhattan Review has grown into a well-respected international educational services company, with branches not just in Zurich, but all across Switzerland and in major European, North American, Asian, and Australian cities. Our offerings have grown to include prep courses and private tutoring for the LSAT, GRE, GMAT, SAT, SSAT, ACT, ISEE, TOEFL, and IELTS, in addition to admissions consulting and application services. We offer our students in-depth knowledge of higher education and standardized testing while providing a holistic context to Zurich, Geneva, and Lausanne, as well as the other cities in which we serve.
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.
