History of Manhattan Review

Manhattan Review originally began in New York City in 1999 where Joern Meissner, who was then a doctoral student and teaching assistant at Columbia Business School, began delivering accessible explanations of complicated theories that appealed to a wide array of students. He was soon encouraged to apply his teaching methods to preparation classes for the Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT), the standardized entrance exam for graduate business school. Meissner's efforts in this area of study would become Manhattan Review's first GMAT prep classes, which consisted of practical approaches to GMAT content that were far superior to the GMAT instruction provided by traditional test prep companies.

Within just a few years, Meissner would complete his doctorate at Columbia and embark on a successful academic trajectory while building Manhattan Review into a globally identifiable brand with a thriving student population in South Africa. Our company now provides prep classes, private tutoring, and practice tests for the TOEFL, IELTS, GRE, GMAT, LSAT, SAT, SSAT, ISEE, and ACT in Cape Town and many other cities in South Africa. Manhattan Review has helped students in Europe, North American, Asia, Latin American, and African countries get accepted to the top school of their dreams. Many of our former clients are now accomplished professionals working for organizations in Cape Town such as Standard Bank Group, FirstRand, and MTN Group, just to name a few.

About our Founder

Joern Meissner is a globally distinguished business school professor who holds a Diploma in Business Management from the University of Hamburg as well as a PhD in Management Science from Columbia Business School in New York City, one of the top Ivy League Schools. After completing his doctoral degree, he opted for the trajectory of a scholar and has now over 25 years of experience as a postsecondary instructor. His passion for teaching is apparent, and he has taught business classes at Lancaster University Management School, the University of Hamburg, the Leipzig Graduate School of Management, as well as the University of Mannheim. Meissner's published research on supply chain management, dynamic pricing, and revenue management has been featured in a handful of well-known and respected academic journals. While Professor Meissner absolutely enjoys his research, he believes that grasping an idea is only half of the fun; imparting knowledge to others is even more rewarding. This philosophy was crucial to the establishment of Manhattan Review, and continues to remain its most cherished principle today.
