SQL Server Management Studio is part of the server install package. You should be fine using the same media but only choose management studio (and maybe Business Intelligence Development Studio if you are required to build any BI components).

Why isn't the question asked during the install  "Do you wish to install client tools?"

I think the more windows does, the less the engineers work in the real world.

Sure it is.  It is an option you can disable, but by default it is included..
