What graduate schools recognize the degree from Independent University of Moscow? It is not a university strictly speaking and their degree doesn't have any official status in Russia, but they claim on their website that Harvard recognizes their degree. Also MIT sends their students for one semester to study at this university, this program is called Math in Moscow.
Anyway their program in math is the most difficult in Russia and the degree is hard to obtain. Many students study there simultaneously while studying in their main university. Will obtaining the degree increase one's chances to be accepted at a graduate school in the US or Europe?
