KUALA LUMPUR Clad in her trademark baju kurung, or Malaysian traditional dress, Zeti Akhtar Aziz is unusually animated as she leads visitors around the gleaming campus of the Asia School of Business.

Having retired last year after 16 years as governor of Bank Negara Malaysia, Zeti -- one of Asia's most formidable central bankers -- is indulging a lifelong passion: education. Specifically, she is throwing herself into creating what she defines as a unique model for the "disruptive business age," particularly in Asia.
