Were or are? If you are still working on it, yes.

Three classes left that I plan to complete

You could mention that you're an "MBA candidate", but not an actual MBA until you have that designation. Also, you wouldn't be able to call yourself a candidate unless you're currently enrolled in an MBA or PhD program.

^ agree, but also if you're looking for a new job, you may not want to include it since you may not come off as being fully dedicated to a new job...

Depends on whether the degree facilitates a job move or just supports the job you have - there is a strategy here around timing that you don't want to miss - you don't get full price for a home that has been on the MLS for 120 days...
