A Problem-Based Learning (PBL) is an approach to education aimed at developing skills [1] and its essential and defining characteristic is the structured learning around a complex issue in which the teacher becomes a facilitator who supports and guides students in their attempts to solve a real-world problem.

PBL started after World War II period characterized by fast and expensive, costing medical procedures, treatment of new diseases which indicated an increase in the number of patients. These challenges required an effective acquisition of knowledge and skills and in 1969 a group of medical educators launched an innovative approach to problem-based learning (PBL) for medical education at McMaster University in Canada [2], characterized by learning in small student groups, using real problems of patients and simulated patients and systematic approach managed by program managers. [3].

In the business environment, Livingston [4] describes that managers usually have many difficulties in applying the scientific knowledge of their higher education management in the business.

The business knowledge and skills involve several areas of knowledge, with an emphasis on basic and complex problems of organizations where the management of processes, resources and strategy directives legitimize the position of a manager or a business owner. [5] [6]
The alignment between science and training manager and business challenges cannot be sufficient to address complex organizational situations, and managers often still seek solutions through intuition, common sense, and empathy.

From these concepts the research aims to explore how the international literature addresses the use of PBL methodology in the training of managers. This is a systematic review content where to fetch describe the features and methodological results of previous studies that focus on PBL method.

This systematic review of content is a method defined by a logical sequence of procedures to expose studies previously published by a scientific community generating critical basis for understanding the state of the art of the topic.

The source of scientific articles will be the Scientific Periodicals Electronic Library (Spell ®), a repository of Brazilian scientific articles providing free access to technical-scientific information, and an international journal with a high impact factor Scopus, both focused on management for a period not less than five years.

The contribution of this research is to verify the application of the PBL method in the learning process of the manager, especially to the egress of the Brazilian Business Undergraduate course, contributing with other researches that emphasize that new forms of education are relevant and that there is evidence that the PBL generates better the involvement of students as a key element for results and consequently, gaining managerial skills in social and cognitive dimensions.
