Generally, credentials from any university are accepted in other countries as long as the university was legally allowed to operate in its home country and was recognized by the authority that certifies higher education. For the US, people generally accept credentials from a university accredited by an organization recognized by the Department of Education. However, if you know where you plan to work abroad, it might help to learn what US universities are well known in your field. Even if you have solid credentials, it helps to attend a university that people are familiar with as it will give you an advantage in the applicant pool. Also, remember that many companies will require you to have your credentials evaluated by an international credential evaluation organization to ensure they are the equivalent of the requirements in their country. This evaluation may also be required for your visa application.
