 John (Jack) Maguire Bio

As an academic trained in the scientific method, Dr. Maguire introduced market research to the field of admissions when he became the Dean of Admissions at Boston College in the early 1970’s.

Soon after he began his groundbreaking work in admissions marketing, he created (and named) the first enrollment management model for the recruitment and retention of students.  During his tenure at Boston College, he tripled the number of applications and transformed the quality and national character of the student body.

Since his founding of Maguire Associates in 1983, Jack has served hundreds of colleges and universities and contributed to the evolution of marketing in higher education.  He has served as a trustee at several institutions and the College Board, and is currently serving on the board of New England College in Henniker, New Hampshire.

Jack has authored numerous papers and served as a faculty member at institutes such as the Harvard Summer Institute and has been featured in Money magazine, Forbes Magazine, The Chronicle of Higher Education, and NPR’s “Talk of the Nation” and “Morning Edition.”

Jack holds a Ph.D. in theoretical physics from Boston College and received a post-doctoral fellowship from Rice University.
