John Katzman

Founder and CEO, Noodle Education

John Katzman’s innovative ideas about education have led him to found three companies: The Princeton Review, 2U, and Noodle. In 1981, Katzman founded The Princeton Review and served as CEO until 2007. By then, the Review was helping half of all students applying to U.S. colleges and universities each year find, get into, and pay for school. Katzman’s work has made him a leading authority on assessment and university admissions. He is the co-author of five books on testing and admissions, and a frequent lecturer and panelist. He serves on the boards of directors for three other non-profits, and the board of advisors of several for- and not-for-profit organizations, including the Woodrow Wilson Foundation and the National Association of Independent Schools.
