Note:

The combination of both IB108 Statistics for Business and IB104 Mathematical Programming I together is equivalent to IB102 Quanitative Methods and Analysis.
IB104 Mathematical Programming I satisfies the prerequisite for IB220 Quantitative Methods for Resource Management.
IB108 Statistics for Business satisfies the prerequisite for IB219 Quantitative Methods for Multivariate Analysis.
CS122 and CS133 cannot be taken together (CS122 is part of CS133).
