Welcome to Apple Support Communities
The MacBook Pro with Retina display hasn't got a SuperDrive, so you have to use other ways to install software from discs. You have two options:
1. If you have another PC or Mac, use Remote Disc > http://support.apple.com/kb/HT5287?viewlocale=en_US
2. Buy an external optical drive and use it to install Office in your computer.
I recommend you to buy an external optical drive because the installation will be faster than using Remote Disc. Remote Disc uses your network to share your discs. You can buy the external optical drive you want because all are supported
