You can download SQL Server 2008 R2 Express with Management Tools from this link
If you want Management Studio alone, you can download from the below link

What's the edition of SQL Server installed on your computer?
If it is SQL Server 2008 R2 Express, then you can download the separate SQL Server Management Studio from the link given by Arunraj.C.
If you have full version of SQL Server, then you could add SQL Serve Management Studio-Basic or SQL Serve Management Studio-Complete via running the installation media.
You may want to refer the below link about difference between SSMS-Basic and SSMS-Complete, so that you could make decision which one is you need to install.
