History of Manhattan Review

In 1999 Joern Meissner, who was then a lecturer and doctoral student at Columbia Business School, planted the seeds for Manhattan Review in New York City. Professor Meissner's lectures to MBA students at Columbia were defined by a special ability to simplify and streamline complex concepts to their essence. A handful of these students expressed that Meissner's teaching style would translate well to preparation for the Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT), and they challenged him to come up with a method of GMAT prep that was better than their previous unproductive and lackluster experiences. Meissner responded by creating original GMAT lectures that covered GMAT material using an efficient, simplified, and streamlined 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 grown into an international educational services firm, with branches not only in London, 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 the U.K. 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 London, Manchester, Cambridge, Oxford, Birmingham, Edinburgh, and Glasgow, in addition to every metropolitan area we serve.

About our Founder

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 completion of his doctoral degree, Meissner chose the career track of an academic and has now more than 25 years of experience as a postsecondary educator. His passion for teaching is apparent, 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 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 grasping an idea is only half of the fun; imparting knowledge to others is even more fulfilling. This philosophy was paramount to the establishment of Manhattan Review, and continues to remain its most treasured principle today.
