Economic impact of Dubai metro
The cross-disciplinary outcomes from this project span many areas of research interests within the Business School, such as impact on property and real-estate market, finance and foreign investments, environmental costs and urban congestion.
Funded by the Dubai Road and Transport Authority, the project incorporated innovative research tools using existing and new forms of data, such as textual sentiment analysis of international news items, to evaluate the international brand-image and attraction of the infrastructure. The team has used both quantitative and qualitative research methods and developed several transferable tools for the project.
