Manhattan Review was founded at Columbia University in New York City in 1999 by Joern Meissner, who was then a doctoral student and teaching assistant at Columbia Business School. Meissner's teaching style featured accessible explanations of complex ideas, making it appealing to a variety of students, who eventually encouraged him to apply his teaching methods to preparation courses for the Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT), the standardized entrance exam for graduate business school. Meissner's efforts in this area would become Manhattan Review's first GMAT prep courses, which included practical approaches to GMAT content that were far superior to the GMAT instruction offered by traditional test prep companies.
Within a few years, Meissner would finish his doctorate at Columbia and embark on a successful academic career while building Manhattan Review into an international business with a thriving student population in Singapore. Our company now offers prep courses, private tutoring, and practice tests for the TOEFL, IELTS, GRE, GMAT, LSAT, SAT, SSAT, ISEE, and ACT in Singapore and dozens of cities around the globe. Manhattan Review has aided students in Asia, North American, European, Latin American, and African countries get accepted to their preferred undergraduate or graduate degree programs. Many of our former clients are now accomplished professionals working for organizations in Singapore such as PricewaterhouseCoopers, Ernst & Young, and DBS Bank, just to name a few, not to mention countless other companies around the world.
Joern Meissner is an internationally distinguished 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. After finishing his doctoral degree, he 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 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; conveying knowledge to others is even more fulfilling. This philosophy was vital to the establishment of Manhattan Review, and continues to remain its most cherished principle today.
