Hannover is for example home to the largest city forest in Europe, the Eilenriede, and to many parks where students often go jogging or have a BBQ.

In October 2016, GISMA launched its campus in Berlin as a joint venture with Grenoble Ecole de Management. Berlin is the second largest city in the EU and the capital of start-ups, offering a wide range of job opportunities to young professionals and graduate students.
