Cookies
In order to better understand the needs and interests of our MBA applicants, MIT Sloan uses cookies to track their usage of the MBA website. A cookie is a string of characters that can be written to a file on a user's hard drive when the user visits a website. Our tracking process is as follows:

When an MBA applicant requests a brochure or begins the application process, the server that hosts our application and brochure request form (https://app.applyyourself.com/?id=mit-mba) attaches a cookie to the user’s hard drive. When that user navigates the MIT Sloan MBA Admissions website, we track the user’s path through the website. This information is only used to help us understand the needs and interests of our applicants. It is not connected with personally identifying information.
