Often considered to be easy to implement because it deals with one or a few units, the case study is one of the means of research used by social scientists in the area of Business Administration. In light of this fact, the objective of this quantitative-qualitative approach was, based on a research model, to verify whether the aspects related to planning, collection and analysis of data or of evidence were explicitly included manner in a sample of dissertations of Business Administration of the Mestrado Executivo em Gestão Empresarial da Escola Brasileira de Administração Pública e de Empresas (Ebape) of Fundação Getúlio Vargas (FGV) defended in 2012-14 triennium. The conclusion is that some of these aspects were fully accomplished, others were half accomplished, and still others were simply forgotten.
