I'm sure all those companies that participate in Ross' MAP program love the deal they're getting! I think they end up paying less than $10K.

Absolutely, look how much money the companies are saving. However, it is also a good experience for the students given that this economy might not have many jobs out there.

That is an incredible idea... however you do get what you pay for and I'm not sure 7 b-school students are on par with an MBB team

Yeah, but maybe for small companies on a budget, this could be a win-win. Anything that can be added to your CV these days instead of "was looking for a job" is a plus.
