The history of Manhattan Review dates back to 1999. Our company's founder, Joern Meissner, was then a doctoral student at Columbia Business School who became known for his ability to teach complex business concepts with an accessible methodology. Meissner was encouraged to apply his teaching methods to preparation for the Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT), the entrance exam for business school. These GMAT courses quickly became popular with students, and the word spread in the graduate student community. From these humble beginnings, a new and better approach to test preparation was born, and the seeds of a worldwide test prep firm were planted.
Manhattan Review rapidly expanded its test prep offerings to include services for the IELTS, LSAT, SAT, SSAT, ACT, ISEE, TOEFL, GMAT and GRE. We now teach test prep to thousands of students not only in Hong Kong, but Asia, North America, Europe, Latin America, and Africa. Dr. Meissner still runs the company while simultaneously pursuing a career as a business school professor and author of several test prep textbooks. Manhattan Review's test prep services have helped countless students get accepted to undergraduate and graduate programs at selective universities in every country in the English-speaking world, including Hong Kong University and the University of Science and Technology in the local area, just to name a few. We consider the success of our students to be the most profound possible statement on the quality of our teaching.
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.
