Depends on the ‘programs’ and how/where they install.

If they install only in the local user profile area – then it could take up the same amount of initial space for each user that installs it.

If they (as most applications do) install in common areas and access to such areas is controlled by permissions (file) and the only thing in the user (an administrator is just another user account with higher privileges) profile(s) are shortcuts to the executables in said common areas – then the initial space is all that is taken up and there is no need to ‘install’ for other users – just create/copy the shortcut or show the user where to go to run it.
