The seeds of Manhattan Review were planted in 1999 when Joern Meissner, then a doctoral student at Columbia Business School, earned a reputation for clearly explaining advanced and complex subjects while giving lectures to MBA students. Several of these students thought 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 experiences. Meissner responded by creating original GMAT lectures that covered GMAT material using an efficient and simplified approach and language that was easy to understand. Students quickly agreed that this approach was far superior to the style of memorization and "tricks" offered by other GMAT prep companies.
In the years since, Manhattan Review has grown into an international educational services firm, with branches not only in Hong Kong, but also major Asian, North American, European, and Australian cities. Our offerings have grown to include prep courses and private tutoring for the GRE, GMAT, LSAT, SAT, and TOEFL, 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, and a large percentage of our student population lives outside of the United States, as well as Hong Kong and across Asia. We offer our test prep clients encyclopedic knowledge of American higher education and American standardized testing as well as thorough familiarity with the educational communities and specialized student needs in Hong Kong and every metropolitan area we serve.
Joern Meissner, an internationally renowned business school professor, completed 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 Ivy League Schools. After completing his doctoral degree, he chose the career path of an academic and has now more than 25 years experience as a postsecondary educator. Professor Meissner's passion for teaching is evident and has taught business courses at Lancaster University Management School, the University of Hamburg, the University of Mannheim, and the Leipzig Graduate School of Management. Meissner's research on supply chain management, dynamic pricing, and revenue management has been published in several respected academic journals. Professor Meissner thoroughly enjoys his research, but he believes that grasping an idea is only half of the fun. Conveying knowledge to others is even more fulfilling. This philosophy was crucial to the establishment of Manhattan Review, and remains its most cherished principle.
