The purpose of this study is to examine the mediating effects of emotional intelligence on the relationship between internal entrepreneurship and individual adaptation performance and to analyze empirically the effect of supportive leadership on the relationship between internal entrepreneurship and individual adaptation performance. In order to do this, we conducted a questionnaire survey of employees in Busan Metropolitan Economic Area in September 2018 (for convenience, graduates of Pusan National University Business School and employees of local companies among current students). As a result, the mediating effect of emotional intelligence and the moderating effect of supportive leadership were verified in the relation between entrepreneurship and individual 's adaptation performance.
